RadioRay Posted March 25, 2010 #26 Share Posted March 25, 2010 Oscar is the nautical term for Man Overboard. That particular term should not be used for any other purpose, so yes, it was either a man overboard or a mob drill. Interestingly, 'Oscar' is also the word used to express the letter O in the phonetic alphabet. I bet that causes confusion. Does anyone have a list of other terms and signals we might hear while on board? Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
