A4ake a Signal! Is a collection of signals, famous and infamous, made in, to, or about the Royal Navy. The author has made the book something more than this, by bringing in his own digressions on the qualities of ideal signals, and the circumstances that govern them.. He also revives some controversies that have blown up over famous signals the Beresford-Scott row that divided the Navy; the Channel escape of the Scharnhorst and Gneisenau; the scattering of Convoy P.Q.I7. He records many signals made in lighter moods, and decorates them aptly. Illustrated frontispiece. 224pp. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½") Illustrated by The Author. Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
