‘Skivvy Wavers’

In the old days there used to be a Signalman Rating in the ol’ Canoe Club… We called them Skivvy Wavers!!! Their job was to communicate to other ships using signal lights, semaphore with hand held flags as well as rigging flags and pennants to let other vessels know of our intentions and operations…  So during the ship’s family day cruise, a young Signalman gave a few demonstrations of semaphore in front of a young gal to show off his skills…

After a superb performance of his demonstration he flirtatiously asked the young gal,

“So now do you know what I do in the Navy?”
To that she exclaims…

“Why yes, you’re the ships Cheerleader!!!”
