** Definitive **
Name: Jeff, Bromley
Qualification: Used to be a telegraphist RNVR (Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve)
Answer: In the 1960s, our instructor had served in Hong Kong and he knew Chinese Morse. He demonstrated it, and the letters seemed to go on for hours, as they had so many more characters than we do.
