I learnt morse code in groups. All the dots then all the dashes, then in similar patterns.

As a boy I was taught a rhyme by my mother which helped.

E I S H what a curious word,
But sometimes you remember things truly absurd.
Its all the plain dotty ones put in a row,
And all the plain dashy ones spell T M O.
A is dot dash, N is dash dot.
and C is dash dot dash dot oh what a lot.

There was more that unfortunately I can't remember. No-one else I have spoken to has heard of this. Has anyone on here?
