I thought Deuter was German but I could be way off. I'm from the UK and was taught the following as an SOS using a whistle

6 blasts at 10 second intervals
Wait 60s

Can't remember if there was a reply

So I think this (6 blasts/minute) might be the European code. Of course you could also use morse code for SOS

(using short and long blasts) does this still get taught in Scouts/military etc?
