    My understanding is that it stands for “Save Our Ship”, at least that’s what I was told when I was in the Navy.

    OK, Tommasino A. Cat was his(her?) name. What did the “A” stand for?

    No, “S” is the only Morse character comprised of 3 dits, and “O” is the only character with 3 dahs (or dots and dashes).

    George Washington also said that political parties were a bad idea. Too bad no one listened to him.

    Well, the message would be a little hard to figure out if more than one Morse character had only 3 dots or 3 dashes, wouldn’t it?

    Oh great. As the ship sinks, the band is still on board, playing ‘Nearer My God To Thee’ but the conductor leads them from the lifeboat.

    The distress signal that SOS replaced was CQD, which in Morse code is (using an underline for a dash and an “o” for a dot to be more visible on this message board):
    o_o_ _ o _ oo. Compare that to ooo _ _ ooo.
    (o o_ ooo_ _ o_ _ o o _ o _)
