If you look in the RFA section at my shots of Empire Gull, you will see a repeater in the boiler room with 'Make Smoke' on it as well.
Not as interesting as the older one though !

On the plates one day manoeuvring in to Sydney when the bridge phone rang you are making black smoke, advised stokehold, next came you are making white smoke, then advised making grey smoke. So I asked which colour do you want. Oop's the old man was on the other end, I can assure you the chief was not impressed, and being the only Jock on the manoeuvring plates he knew who it was, and I got a bollicking plus a nice we dram.

Ah... Empire Gull - brings back memories. Also the quaintly named Empire Fred - built in the early 1940's and scrapped early 70's - The Admiralty certainly got their moneys worth there.
