Historical events on this day Oct 3.

1906: The 'Morse Code' letters S O S,or dot dot dot dash dash dash dot dot dot are adopted as the international distress signal at the Berlin Radio Conference, replacing C Q D. ................................................................................... 2009: An asylum seekers' boat disappears on its way from Indonesia to Christmas Island, with 105 Hazaras on board presumed drowned after an Australian delay in passing on a distress call..SOS? ................................................................................... It seems it is near impossible to land a small boat on Christmas Island without a mishap or without assistance. The Illegal immigrants are compelled to call for assistance on the high seas. By giving these criminals entry to Australia is illegal by any standard. ...................................................................................... People who attempt to enter Australia via the International Airports are usually held in custody until the next available plane back to whence they came. Our present Federal Govt is condoning this illegal activity, no other country would allow illegal entry to their territories. Our ineffective weak Kneed Govt is turning a blind eye to Illegal entry into Australia. ..................................................................................... Actually my first visit to Australia from Great Britain saw me arrive without a passport, however, that is another story. Our imagination is the only limit to what we can have in the future. Vest..... Back soon.
