    Agreed, and ( some are definitely not going to like this:) semaphore
    is still used in the RN but largely between the RN and RFA to pass
    personal messages between COs during refuelling. This won't go on
    forever as semaphore is no longer a compulsory part of the signallers
    trade (unlike Morse code) but, as long as there are those who want to
    learn it, there will be an avenue for its use.

    I quite agree. I too doubt that Lifeguards in the UK know landing
    signals, but I would expect that Coastguards and RNLI folk and possibly
    USCG to know them. Yotties who have done the RYA qualifications should
    have at least seen landing signals and they are fairly self evident in
    their meaning.

    And you dont need to be able to read morse at anything like
    6wpm to do that, and dont need to be able to read it at all when
    the NDB receiver decodes it itself and displays it in text format.
    Wrong again.
    There is no morse test for cpl anymore
    in any of the main first world countrys.

    Fantasy. I just asked if semaphore was used anymore FOR FUN.
    AND I clearly said that a few loons may well be doing that.

    After all, some do some quite remarkably silly things
    FOR FUN like train spotting, bird spotting, etc etc etc
    and it wouldnt surprise me in the slightest if someone
    is still foisting it on kids in the sea scouts etc even now.
    Why instead of those light systems whatever they are called ?

    Oh cheap arsehole.
    No such animal.
    Pity that the context was obvious relevant
    with that question of stuff done FOR FUN.
    More fool you. Threads frequently drift away from that is
    in the subject and even someone as stupid as you should
    have noticed that was true with the post you replied to.
    No such animal.
    Pathetic, really.
    Even you should be able to bullshit your way out of your
    predicament better than that pathetic effort, arsehole.
    Good Riddance!!!

    Wrong. As always.
    Go and **** yourself. Again.
    Not one pair of which wouldnt have seen worse than that.
    Completely irrelevant.

    Says he carefully deleting from the quoting what was said.

    Another flagrantly dishonest arsehole.
    Pity the principle is completely different. Landing signals DO
    NOT spell out the message letter by letter. Semaphore does.

    Thats not what you said initially, you flagrantly dishonest arsehole.
    So the 'principal' is nothing like the same. The ONLY similarly
    is that arms and flags are normally used and flags arent usually
    used with landing signals, normally just arms.
    What the **** is the point in repeating what I already said, fuckwit ?

    You were always just plain wrong with your original claim that there
    is any 'principal' in common between semaphore and landing signals.

    Nothing to do with semaphore, fuckwit.
    Just another terminally silly pommy wank.

    I am just telling you how it is. There is no particular reason for you
    to believe me other than understanding that I would not post garbage
    under my own name and email address. I will correct matters of fact
    where I have personal expertise (when I can be bothered) similarly, I
    will not post information unless I believe it factual.

    What you do with the info I provide is entirely your problem but don't
    expect me to waste time discussing it with you.

    Probably because there is a man standing there with flags in
    his hand already. Flags (not semaphore) are used to control
    the passing of ropes, pipes etc between the 2 ships. You
    may ask why not use radio but I guess this can be detected
    by an enemy.

    Crap, not on that stupid '( some are definitely not going to like this:)' claim.
    I know that claim is stupid shit.
    No one has any way of knowing if that is invented or not
    and plenty are stupid enough to make very spectacular
    fools of themselves even when they do use their own name.
    That particular stupid '( some are definitely not going to like this:)'
    claim aint even a matter of fact. Its just your stupid claim.
    You're beliefs have always been and always will be, completely
    and utterly irrelevant with that particular stupid claim.
    No problem for anyone except you, wanker.
    How odd that you did, fuckwit.
