The Mayday procedure word originated in 1923 by Frederick Stanley Mockford (1897–1962). A senior radio officer at Croydon Airport in London, Mockford was asked to think of a word that would indicate distress and would easily be understood by all pilots and ground staff in an emergency. Since much of the traffic at the time was between Croydon and Le Bourget Airport in Paris, he proposed the word "Mayday" from the French "m’aider" ("venez m'aider" meaning "come help me").
Before the voice call "MAYDAY", SOS was the Morse Code equivalent of the MAYDAY call. In 1927, the International Radiotelegraph Convention of Washington adopted the voice call MAYDAY in place of the SOS Morse Code call.. The MAYDAY was defined as corresponding to the French pronunciation of the expression “m'aider”.
