With the articles in his hand, Deck returned to the Confederate signalmen.
When I came to know our signalmen on the human side I appreciated it even more.
But if signalmen were there they were hidden by the forest even from his glasses.
There were, also, staffs of signalmen, in case the wires should fail at any time.
Now, when the Kicking Twelfth had left Spitzbergen there was an average of six signalmen in each company.
Mortimer and his assistants presently began to manipulate the flags again, and Confederate signalmen, on a far peak, replied.
Turning round, he noticed that Pincher and one or two signalmen were still on the bridge.
Flags and helios were speedily busy in the hands of our signalmen sending back information to the Sirdar.
I was up on the bridge with the signalmen, and one minute we were up in the air and the next the black sea yawned beneath us.
It was at five minutes past noon that the signalmen reported that the German ships had hoisted ensigns and burgees.
