Definition of field telegraph in English:
A movable telegraph for use on campaign.
- The British would, soon after, organize their first field telegraph trains in the Royal Engineers.
- Signal stations were difficult to establish and much less effective in bad weather or at night - when torches were used instead of flags - but they were easier to lay out than field telegraph wire.
