What were the messages? – Sea Lion Morse Decoded!

As Operation Sea Lion has begun shipping to people, we thought we should reveal all of the Morse code messages!

Over the weeks in the run up to the latest Bolt Action campaign book release, Sea Lion, we made 5 teaser videos. Each week, more of Sea Lion was revealed. We featured posters, book art and photos of the miniatures. Additionally, from the 2nd week, we had the voice of our illustrious leader John Stallard giving a speech of inspiration!
However, that was not all, for those keen of ear we added some Morse code in the background. We asked around on social media if you could decode them but now we can share every message decoded for you – did you get them right?
