At the close of the war two large bells were taken from the Church of the Twelve Apostles at Sebastopol. One was placed on the North Terrace of Windsor Castle, before being moved to the Round Tower where it still hangs; it is struck only to toll the death of the Sovereign. The other was placed overlooking the south camp at Aldershot, as can be seen here. It is now located on Hospital Road in Aldershot.
