I assumed that Ransome got the basic idea from the Sherlock Holmes adventure and made it into semaphore rather than the secret signs used by Conan Doyle so that people could actually try and read it themselves. He even provided semaphore lessons and pictures earlier in Winter Holiday to show how it was done.
