SIGNALLING FEATS IN WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 May 1917
SIGNALLING FEATS IN WAR' ~-4-- The report that at the Battle of Ishtib a Bulgarian cowherd signalled news to his military countryman re lative to the position of the Serbian battalions by movng five cows about in various ways on the top of a hill, recalls similar peculiar signalling feats-in war. SThe Basutos, for example, practical ly anticipated "wireless telegraphy" in a crode fashion. That is, by strik ing heavily on a huge drum of goat skin which is placed on a special spot another Basuto at a distance can ga ther the purport of the message by placing his ear close to the ground to catch the vibrations; and then he, in turn, passes the message on. So quickly can this be done, owing to the peculiar confignration of Basuto land, that, during the South African war the Basutos were said to know all about big battles .long before the people in Capetown. Of course, given suitable climatic conditions, the military heliograph can transmit messages over enormous tracts of country, and t...
