Message Detail:
Hi Mike,

While coming astern of Mark's excellent reply to your questions, allow me say that the US Navy published a small thin tome in Dark Blue cloth over boards pertaining to 'boat-signals' in 1862.

I'm not aware of what might have existed prior to that
printing but you can check with the folks over at the Navy Yard in Washington or speak with someone at the Nimitz Library at Annapolis.

We appreciate your visit and hope you choose to post up with us often. Every day is a new expedition here at the Signal Corps Association's forum.

Walt
