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: Micro Writen Code Examples


Read more on this story and more in the Adelaide Advertiser

Following up on the recent posts on Prosigns and Micro written codes, here are 3 examples of letters containing micro code. At this time there is no proof that the Somerton Man wrote the various coded messages only that he had a torn piece of paper which matched the same type of paper found in the book and the same phrase, TAMAM SHUD on the torn piece, was missing from that book.

The letters concerned are A and Q from the fourth line, and S from the fifth and final line. Work on other letters is well advanced and they will be released as soon as they reach a reasonably viewable state.

For the record, the process used to reveal these hidden letters and numbers is colour replacement. What that means we are able to remove lighter shades of grey from the larger letters leaving the darker coloured numbers and letters in view.

If you are able to make any headway on interpreting what you see here we would be delighted to hear your views.
