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: Breakthrough Verse 70 Microcode revealed, Amazing close up images...


Close up images, bleached and contrast adjusted, each marked up area contains visible microcode, the code consists of letters and numbers. Take your time and browse through the collection of microcode images shown in this post. They really are a major breakthrough. Those that have followed other paths and that have dismissed the work done here to date will now have to rethink their positions.

It is acknowledged that many people have put a lot of time and effort into pursuing historical information based on the people associated with the case, that work has not been wasted, it needs to be reviewed in the light of the evidence presented here.

My opinion is that the Verse 70 shown here, was used as a training exercise for Jestyn and possibly the Musgraves. Alf Boxall could well have been the trainer and was most certainly familiar with SOE secret communication methods, specifically, Ink H. That makes him an Intelligence operative and by association so was Jestyn and so was SM.

Image from the Fez Lady showing a string of numbers, but as you will see as you work down this page, that is just the beginning.

The number 70 at the bottom left and immediately above, shows a set of numbers which were put there by Alf Boxall thus proving that he was involved in the process. It also directly relates to the discovery of the Rubaiyat which contained more microcode concealed within the so-called, 'code page' as indeed does the torn piece containing the words Tamam Shud.

Now we clearly have Alf, Jestyn and The Somerton Man connected by virtue of the discovery of this microcode.

More examples below of what is amazing expertise being displayed by whoever wrote the microcode, some of the images are a little blurred for which I apologise! There is quite a collection as you can see but I have to tell you that this not all there is. There many more of these Verse 70 Images and when I get chance I will organise this into a better format/gallery, by clicking on the images, many of them will appear in a larger format.

For all my fellow followers and contributors to Pete Bowes 'Toms by Two' blog, I hope that these images will display well on your screens! Any feedback you have is always very welcome and would be appreciated.

And for all those that doubted the existence of microcode in this case, I can understand the scepticism but the evidence is in and it is time now to put those doubts and scepticism behind. Getting to this information was simply a matter of using the bleaching method and then some basic image sharpening. More than happy to answer any questions related to the recovery methods used.

To my knowledge, whilst references are made in various books and manuals to this kind of clandestine communication method, the images presented on this blog are the first publicly viewable examples.
