Subject: RE: THE Two Element Code

Message Detail:
Standardization to allow universal comunications.
same as adoption of morse over bain or vail telegraph codes.
1 left 2the right from earliest recounts from Brown & Myer before my reenacting time and based on letter frequencies the same as telegraph codes was.
Preconcerted adopted by SCARD for the same reason but by modern reenactors for battle reenactments for most commonly sent signals. Stutter for event specific communications and can be changed only with agreement by all parties involved.

Same goes for protocol.

Such as...

Always begin in preconcerted code.
always indicate fed or confederate direction when requesting movement.
Alway open and close a question signal with the preconcerted question signal.
All to avoid confusion or misinterpretation.
