SEMAPHORE ALPHABET And Numerical Signs For The Army


This Great War period guide to the art of flag semaphore was original published by Gale & Polden and formed part of their respected ‘Military Series’. Each letter of the alphabet is illustrated with a front-facing soldier using this rapid means of field communication. Semaphore could usefully be employed at short distances, as between columns and their advanced guard, or rear guards, across rivers, or fire-swept zones, and to connect an attacking line with its supports.
