Bosun anchor winch

I Have an older anchor winch it has a capstan and gypsy for 3/8 chain
it has a bronze cap on top of the capstan with BOSUN across the top. it has a spring loaded pin drive which locks a spline gear onto the vertical through deck drive shaft under the bronze cap. Not quite sure how to operate it.

Has anyone ever heard of them? Have searched with no luck.
