Subject: Inter-national Mil Comms

Message Detail:
This is clearly out of bounds, and I apologize (sort of) in advance, but I thought many, if not most, of you might enjoy seeing what's happening off the Horn of Africa these days, with multiple nations, blocs, mil formations and ships trying to conduct protection and anti-pirate ops. (I can only wonder about visual signals, but realize this can't be the whole story.) Funny, I kept imagining an army signalman up in the rigging (do they have rigging these days?) waving a left-right flag to get the message through, while the martime signal codes were being skimmed to find the appropriate flag hoists!)
