Big Da-Dit-Da Class Graduated at New Naval Radio School (film #94 on Universal Newsreels). [Category: Military & Propaganda]

Newsreel story from World War II about the graduation of a class of telegraph operators. This has a fairly interesting and weird beginning where a teacher has the students repeat various letters of the alphabet in Morse Code, as das (dashes) and dits (dots). Then we get to see the sailors sending messages and operating teletype machines, and a little bit of footage of their graduation. An unusual bit of military history here.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
