EHanley is on a distinguished road
I read several of the O'Brian books, including one featuring the messaging system along the southern European coast comprising a series of towers with checkerboards facing each way, on which the operators could instantly duplicate the sending tower's black and white pattern and send it along. Months later, I moved into an apartment house in Estepona, Spain, and one of those towers was still standing in the parking lot!
