The Somerton Man Case. The body of a man found on an Australian beach close to a major Atomic Testing ground, he was probably poisoned, a copy of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam and an unbroken Code page found and associated to him. Set against a Cold War background in 1948, was this man a spy? We think so and this blog focuses on the evidence that was left behind and in some cases missed, the Code page, Dry Cleaning numbers, A Poem and a small, torn piece of paper bearing the words TAMAM SHUD.

Somerton Man: Line 4 of the 'Code' page

After receiving numerous requests about line 4 of the 'Code' page and what it shows, I've decided to publish the full version here. A few notes for you, these 'letters' of the code as full of smaller letters are and numbers, you will need to focus carefully on what you see and be aware that the characters are very small, probably around .25mm in height and possibly less.

You also need to consider that,apart from micro dots that were used to transmit miniature photographs of whole pages of information, there were 'in between' methods that were neither micro dots nor micro writing, this could be what you will see here.

I have made an in depth study of examples of handwriting and nothing I have seen looks anything like the images you will see in the following images.

Come back again soon, there will be another post very shortly that will add yet another puzzling and extremely curious aspect to the Somerton man case.
