Sergeant Posted January 14 Share Posted January 14 (edited) Carl, Isn's comment below reminded me of something I wanted to mention earlier regarding the Morse Key light switch that you did a few weeks ago. The cipher (flashing Morse Code) used by the Allies when they flew over the invasion fleet off the Normandy coast was dit-dit-dit-dah or dot-dot-dot-dash, code for the letter V in the English alphabet. The code "V" stood for Victory (Allied Victory). It was tapped out to the rhythm from the opening of the Fifth Symphony of Ludwig van Beethoven, who as you know was a very great German composer. I think there was a bit of irony in choosing that code, which was probably understood by most airmen at the time, but it’s meaning may have been forgotten over the last 79-years.

I also learnt something about morse light signalling! Isn Edited January 28 by Sergeant 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
