"Vatican cameos appears in The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1901. It is not a WWII code unless Hound of the Baskervilles were what the troops were referring to. Otherwise, it's straight up Conan Doyle."

"In WWII the phrase “Vatican Cameos” was used when a person who was not in the British army came before the general, or other high up ranks, as a signal to the other officers that the person was armed. So when Sherlock says “Vatican Cameos” to warn John that the safe has a gun in it, it’s not something that they’ve set up as a code word- It’s a code Sherlock knew John would know- being a soldier!"

"The two sides of the Sherlock fandom right now (I'm in both halves at once!)" Oh, there isn't a line between the Mustache half and the Observational half - we're all doing both, I should think.

Vatican cameos is from one of the Sherlock Holmes stories; something referenced from a prior case. I believe, though not entire sure, it's from The Sign of Four, but again not sure on that.

VATICAN CAMEOS

Super high-quality Vatican Cameos gif (from A Scandal in Belgravia)

'Vatican Cameos' is a phrase used when Sherlock is about to open Irene Adler's safe. The phrase first originated in World War 2. It was used when a non-military person, who was armed (gun or knife) entered a British military base. The phrase was a signal for everyone to duck out of the line of fire. Sherlock knew that John, being a military man, would recognise this phrase and duck out of the way of the gun in the safe.

"Vatican cameos" wasn't a code word between John and Sherlock. It was an army phrase, British, that he knew John, a soldier, would understand but the Americans wouldn't :)
