to the addressees or to the OTC if there are no addressees. SECOND SUB in place of the address means “For general information, no specific address, no answer required.” THIRD SUB preceding the address means “This signal, in addition to being addressed to certain ships for action, is for general information and is to be relayed and answered as an all ships signal.” FOURTH SUB at the yardarm means ”Accompanying signals are taken from ATP 2, volume II” or national or regional defense organization publications. Construction of Heading In constructing flaghoist calls, numerals are expressed by numeral pennants except when numeral flags are specifically indicated. The heading consists of the address. Ordinarily, only action addressees are indicated, but information and exempted addressees may be included. Flag W and the NEGAT pennant, respectively, are used for information and exempted addressees. The address may be omitted under the following situations: Signals to all ships from the OTC or senior officer present afloat By ships addressing the OTC that are in direct visual communication with him/her and no relay is required and no confusion would result By ships or commands addressing emergency signals to the OTC A tackline must often be used to separate call signs to avoid ambiguous combinations of flags in the heading. It will always be used to separate flag W from the call sign preceding and/or following it in the same hoist. Address designations used in flaghoist messages are call signs, address groups, and sequence numbers. Example of a heading: ACTION—All ships INFO—Main body EXEMPT—Amphibious force HOIST—p2 TACK W TACK p3 NEGAT p3p2 TEXT The text of flaghoist messages will consist of such prescribed signals and plain language as may be necessary to convey the subject matter expressed by the originator. Usually the message is made up of signals from the Allied Maritime Tactical Signal and Maneuvering Book, ATP 1, volume II, or the International Code of Signals, Pub 102. International signaling is discussed in chapter 6. ALLIED MARITIME TACTICAL SIGNAL AND MANEUVERING BOOK LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Explain the procedure for the use of the Allied Maritime Tactical Signal and Maneuvering Book, ATP 1, volume II, including general procedures, listing chapters, the use of the supplementary tables, single flags and pennants, substitutes, and supplementing signals. Describe procedures for encoding and decoding signals. ATP 1, volume II, is the origin of most tactical communications between Allied naval units. The signal book consists of instructions, tabulated sections of code, and special tables. The 34 chapters of the signal book are constituted as follows: Chapter l—General Instructions for Use of the Book Chapter 2—Single Flags and Special Pennants Chapter 3—Emergency Alarm and Action Signals Chapters 4-9—Maneuvering Signals Using Pennants Chapters 10-34—Two-Letter and Number-Letter Signals, Special Tables (Operational and Administrative), and Main Signal Vocabulary The overall security classification of the signal book is NATO Restricted, but groups contained therein are a simple unchanging code and have no security. If the system of signaling is subject to interception, only unclassified information should be sent in the code. Unless specified otherwise, signals from the signal book may be used with any communication media, including flashing light, voice radio, and flaghoist. Chapter 1 is a must for all Signalmen. It contains the general instructions for use of this publication. Take time to thoroughly study this chapter. Signals relating to certain important types of actions are grouped in flag action tables. For instance, signals relating to ASW are located in one table. There are six flag action tables; each flag action table has a 5-7
