f232 is the signal that is used by ship grounding and collisions and was thought by admiralty to be very unlucky so they chose another. passed on by brother just retired from nuclear subs after35years service on them.

Calvin, you’re mostly right. 232 was unlucky as it is the RN report form number for collisions and groundings,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, especially unlucky for the Captain?????????????????????? (Applause)
