Response to Corpsman and Jim...
Sue: yes there was a test each time you tryed to advance. You had to do so many letters per minute and they had to correct. You had to send and receive per requirment. both flashing light and semaphore. along with knowing flag hoist. know the flags of different countries, know some navagation. and a lot of things I'm sure I forgot about. Along with being a beachmaster, you had to know about firearms and some self defense. Also knowing some to the marine corps way of doing things. also as a signalman you had to learn some of the radioman's work.
