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: Absolute Proof of The Presence of Micro Writing? The Truth, So Simple...


So Simple and Yet We All Missed It...

Letter S Last Line Showing Micro Writing

Letters T & G Showing Micro Writing Quite Legible
A, Q and C Sequence in Line 4 of the Code page Showing Micro Letters and Numbers..

66 YEARS...

All the small markings you can see within the larger letters above are micro letters and numbers and they were placed within larger outline letters using those letters as carriers.

For so many years, 66 years now in fact, everyone, and I do mean everyone with myself included, overlooked the obvious. The obvious things being the similarity of the letter R in both the code page and Jestyn's Verse 70 Inscription made in the copy of the Rubaiyat handed over to Alf Boxall at the Clifton Gardens Hotel. Next, the fact that the last letter in the last line of the code page was not a B but an R making the last two letters of the code now AR and not AB. That in turn matches the AR Prosign code from a US Military Radio Operators Manual which means 'This is my last message to you, no reply is expected or required'. The latter is corroborated by the presence of the letter V at the beginning of the last line with the Prosgn V meaning 'From' And finally the presence of Micro Written Letters and Numbers in both Jestyns Inscription and the Somerton Man Code Page.

So Simple and Yet We All Mised It..

1. When the Police received the book, the back page was missing, it had been torn off.

2. That left the next inner fly leaf page that was examined under UV light and it was that examination that revealed indentations. Indentations under UV Light show up as white.

3. The Police photographed  the page whilst it was under UV light which would have shown a bluish tinge across the page and the white indentations all lined up.

4. In order to enhance the appearance of the white indentations, they produced a negative, this means that the bluish tinge would turn a light to mid grey just like the code page and the white indentations would turn to black. In fact given the statement in the next point, they may have found two shades of colouring within the indentations.
5. THE CLINCHER is this, now that we have a negative image which shows the indentations as being black and they made the shape of letters, it is also very possible that larger letters were drawn by the author of the page to act as a guide for the smaller, micro letters and numbers.


The answer of course is that you wouldn't, the only reason the Police would need to mark over the negative markings on the image would be that they were covering over the many smaller micro written letters and numbers. They would have liked the public to give feedback and what these marked over letters might mean but they certainly didn't want to tip off others or show that micro writing had been found.

That's it in a nutshell, it was staring us all in the face and we all missed it until now.

In another Post I will describe what I believe to be the process used by Police to create the photograph of the code that we are all familiar with.

The Truth Was Hidden In Plain Sight All The Time..
