What Ship, Where Bound?

A History of Visual Communication at Sea

David Craddock

Titled after the opening message between passing ships, this handbook outlines the development of maritime signalling from ancient times. It explains the standardization of semaphore in the 18th century, decodes Nelson’s famous signal at Trafalgar, and describes the flags used in yacht racing today. Illustrated in colour throughout, it includes a timeline and tables of British and US naval flags, light signals and Morse code.
