Re the International Code; in WD Titty gets the flag "S for a pilot" (WD ch 19, hb p252) ; earlier Titty pulls out the S flag "a dark blue square with a wide border" and says regretfully that we shan’t want it on this voyage (WD ch 6, hb p87). But a note (*p87) says that in the new code the signal for a pilot is G, with upright stripes of blue and yellow. Did AR want to keep the old flag, or was it too much work to change the text at the proof stage?
Mine is the twenty-fifth Impression, 1968. Was the note at the bottom of the page included in the original 1937 edition?
