placeholder gifSemaphore Game

Imagine the time before mobile phones, radio or television. In those days if you wanted to talk over distances you might use signal fires or flash sunlight with a mirror.

The best system available was probably semaphore. This was based on making a pattern with flags. Two trained people could keep in touch over several miles. If a large signalling machine was used the distances might be a lot greater.

If you search for " semaphore"on the website you will find a picture of a machine at Berry Head.
