Re: International signal flags
Ron, thanks for your response. I will read the entire ethnology. The black flag reference differs with translations from the German. The Chief Engineer's son (Frank Maher) thought the Esso Williamsburg was on some sort of special mission and the flag in his translation was black. Translations I found didn't state the color. The ship, however, was flying some type of flag. Yes, Hans is my brother. Has many good memories of the J. W. Brown!
