    ๐Ÿ“ Fighting Lights

    Many thanks for the quick replies. If these lights were just high up extra navigation lights, it will be an easy fix to just wire them up with the cabin navigation lights. A bit of a let-down really as I was about to try and program a pic integrated circuit to sent out some morse !! A very big learning curve, except that I used to send out morse code as an amateur radio operator in the past as G4ZSS. It will be easy to have a switched circuit to switch these extra mast head lights on/off.
    Thanks for the interest I look forward to anymore comments,all the best, steve.

    I am building a HDML at 1/24th scale from the model boats plans Jan/Feb 1984, and the Sarik vac formed hull. (Harbor Defence Motor Launch)
    The model that I have finally decided on is ML1407,which took part on the D Day landings as a navigational leader.
    According to the late John Lambert in the book Allied Coastal Forces of WW2 page 129, the boat was fitted out with extra radar-plus antennas, plenty of splinter mats and "fighting lights" which he gives more information on page 172 showing two red lights on the port side of the tee mast and two green lights on the stb side, as per normal navigation lights. What I need to know is how these lights were displayed. I have been advised by the Captain of HMS MEDUSA one of the only remaining HDMLs still sailing,I believe, that he thinks that these lights wouldn't have sent morse code. I presume they were there to avoid "friendly fire" so what the h*** did they display or flash !!!! Can anyone give me a correct answer. ๐Ÿค“
    The boat is near completion apart from fitting the radio and the wiring to the mast lights. Everybody that I have asked has no idea so please HELP..
    I'm not on the computer very often so I apologize now if I don't reply quickly. Many thanks Steve.
