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: The Fez Lady's Secret

A Very Quick Post..

There's far more to this image than meets the eye..

The above pic was taken with oblique lighting from an 18 Watt LED. Needs a little tidy up but good enough to show some interesting aspects in the three highlighted areas, these do not show up in two other copies of the same book, same edition and with the same image.

A must see video on Spying techniques from WW1 which are still appropriate today, one of the characters featured is Louise De Betignies

More to follow..
