Preview Dolphin Code

  The Dolphin Code was a method of encrypted communications designed to enable submarines, submariners, ship captains, helicopter pilots, and anti-submarine aircraft to speak to each other in areas of submarine operations or in many cases, social and domestic activities surrounding people of the "Trade". It came as a follow on from the popular but not precised enough, surface ship simile known as the "Falcon Code" that originated sometime in the 1960's.

The Dolphin Code was authored and published by Captain(N) K.G. Nesbit, CD (Ret'd) when as the Commanding Officer of the Canadian submarine, HMCS/m Okanagan as a Lieutenant Commander in 1975-6. During his tenure as C.O. Okanagan, Lcdr Nesbit played many gimmicks in order to "kill" the foe. Aboard, he had among the crew many who spoke French and two others who spoke in Spanish and Icelandic respectively. Together with a plethora of language and noise making devices such as an electric razor resonating in a pipe tobacco tin, 'Nezzie continued to baffle his surface, sub-surface, and aerial aggressors over the underwater telephone from any depth below the layers. It was at this time when Okanagan adopted the spanish vernacular "Pandera Rosetta" whose animated figure of the "Pink Panther" is illustrated on the front of Okanagan's fin to this day. It was also at this time when the submarine's main engines were dubbed "BERT" and "ERNIE" in commemoration of the stokers' love of the TV program, Sesame St.Think about it! Wanna have fun?
