Did you know…

 

DID you know that on this day, July 1, 1905, the ‘SOS’ (· · · – – – · · ·) distress signal became the worldwide standard for help?

According to the website, www.projectbritain.com, on October 3, 1906 the ‘SOS’ signal was established as an International Distress Signal by an agreement made between the British Marconi Society and the German Telefunk organisation at the Berlin Radio Conference. It was however only formally introduced on July 1, 1908.

‘SOS’ stands for ‘Save Our Souls’.
