Winks 7 - A Huge Clue
“I have not lost my mind - it's backed up on disk somewhere.”
- Unknown, yes, unknown – maybe they forgot?
BIG SPOILER ALERT
This is the patch Colonel McKay had on his uniform.
It’s the 1st Psychological Operations Battallion’s unit emblem.
Officially its symbolism represents:
Use of colour white: purity and truth – the Battalion’s preferred type of propaganda
The parchment roll: ability to disseminate written propaganda
The lightning flash: dominating the broadcast frequencies (radio & TV)
The PSI symbol in Greek: their mission, mess with your heads
The 'First' refers to their battalion number, of course.
So why is this important to the tale?
I introduced it, very early on, as a big clue for the observant to indicate what was really going on in the town, long before Moore came clean.
I was ‘messing with your head’.
