Memory Aids - the only ones I can think about relate to men having two red balls - and being out of control (not under command) most of the time. (Apologies to the sensitive...).
Fog SignalsNote fog signals are as per sailing vessels - one long blast followed by two short blasts at intervals of not more than two minutes.
