The International Code was update in 1930 and again in 1961, I couldn't find out when the change from S to G was made but presumably Ransome would have used the current version when he wrote WDMTGTS which was published in 1937. So presumably the footnote was added at a later date by the publishers when the signal was changed. They probably new how much people relied on Ransome to learn things as well as being entertained by his stories.
