* In the Cruise version of ''Film/TheWarOfTheWorlds'', the walkers have a siren call. This may have been borrowed from the ''Journey to the White Mountains'' books, where the walkers would signal out a siren warning call as they approached.

** The midshipman is actually reluctant to sound the alarm, so a more decisive officer does so on his behalf. Unfortunately the crew witnessed his indecision -- this and other events cause him to lose their respect.

** Another old pre-siren alarm used on Civil War-era ironclads was a gragger, which was a large ratchet-type device where a board attached to a rotating mechanism would be spun by a coiled spring around a large ratchet gear which would be static and attached to a post on the deck, producing a loud clacking sound as the board moved over the gear's teeth. If you've ever heard a gragger, you know that even the small ones can be ''loud'' so you can only imagine what one the size of a small naval cannon anchored to the deck would sound like to sleeping sailors.
