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: Code Letter Analysis, 'G' from GAR sequence

Letter G from GAR Sequence Last Line of Code Page

First Close up Image of G from GAR sequence, last line of code

Image taken of the letter G, this is the best we have been able to do thus far with a reasonably clear, but a little blurred, string of letters and numbers within the curve of the letter. The next one will be clearer.

My reading of this section is:

IRY27V  X235560  5X?D 23

I will gladly leave the code to others, not my strong suite! If you are seeing a different set of letters/numbers then please advise and we can post your views if you wish.

In the background you may be able to make out some of the numbering on the S and the T.

This is further and in my view overwhelming evidence of the existence of microwriting on the code page with much more to come.

Again I am using a high resolution screen and printer where necessary together with LED lighting and I have use of a 2800 Lumen data projector with which the micro writing is quite clear.
