He developed a semaphore system with his mother where they rang at set times and used the number
of rings with a code book.

So it was an agreed code, rather than semaphore as such, but very Ransomish nevertheless.

As well as the secret message techniques used by Ransome's characters, I wonder whether Ransome
himself sometimes speaks to us in code.
