Communication is very important, especially when you are isolated on a maritime island or onboard a ship. But how would you communicate if you did not have a phone or computer, or if the person you were trying to talk to spoke a different language? Before the advent of the radio, computers or cell phones, Signal Stations were erected on the highest hills in Bermuda and they played an essential role in Island and maritime communication and vessel traffic surveillance.
