Notes :

  1. MHWS = Mean High Water Springs
  2. Focal distance of optics is given in millimetres.
  3. Fl = Flashing (the period of light is shorter than the period of eclipse).
    Fl (2) = Group Flashing (the number in brackets indicates the number of flashes).
    L Fl = Long Flash (a single flash of not less than 2s regularly repeated).
    Q = Quick Flash (a light which flashes at a rate of 50-80 flashes per minute).
    Iso = Isophase (the period of light is equal to the period of eclipse).
    Oc = Occulting (the period of light is longer than the period of eclipse).
    Dir = Directional Light (a light showing over a very narrow sector; this sector may be flanked by sectors of different colour or character, or greatly reduced intensity)
    W = White.
    R = Red.
    G = Green.
    The total period (complete sequence of light plus eclipse) is stated in seconds.
    * Shown throughout 24 hours.
    ** High intensity light by day.
    #Also shown by day when fog signal is sounding.
    ##Also shown by day in poor visibility.
    Full details of light characters and sectors are in the Admiralty List of Lights and Fog Signals (Vol A).
  4. Fog Signals: the number of blasts in each sequence is stated in brackets; the total period is stated in seconds. Racons,: the Morse signal transmitted is stated in brackets.
