Subject: mechanical diving alarm

I'm looking for information on the older mechanical diving alarm. This one was used on the Permit era boats in the 60's and 70's. I would like to find the electrical diagram/specs for the actuator windings, or the manufacturer.

Stamped into the metal is an F within a circle with what appears to be a lightening bolt.

Joe, these "older" diving alarms (a.k.a. klaxons) used a motor actuated diaphram (via a cog) for the vibration (sound) produced.  They are/were made "mostly" by Federal Signals (probably same as your logo)... They were still making them several years back for a price tag around $1,300.00 - Hope this helps answer you question...
