the Camp Crowder Central Signal Corps School Workbook
In order to secure legibility and avoid errors in copying code messages, the following system of lettering is prescribed. Observe carefully the arrowheads indicating the direction of the strokes, and the numbers showing the order in which the strokes are to be made.
The straight line is the foundation stroke. The letters E, Z, X, and K are made slightly smaller at the top. The letters H, E, Z, and F have the center horizontal strokes slightly above the middle. The letters X, Y, and K have the junction slightly above the middle.
The bar under the numeral 1, the top of the numerals 5 and 7, and the bottom of 2, are straight lines. The numeral 1 has a bar under it, slightly below the stem, to distinguish it from the letter I and the cipher 0 has a bar diagonally through it to distinguish it from the letter O.
The letters O, Q, C and G, are made in circular form. The letter B is slightly smaller at the top and has the center horizontal part slightly above the middle. The letters R and S are slightly smaller at the top.
