THE SOMERTON MAN CODES EXPOSED: THE BOXALL/JESTYN RUBAIYAT> DID ALF SIGN HIS WORK?


THE BOXALL RUBAIYAT CODE 

THE TUNIC







The above image from the Alf Boxall Rubaiyat, or to be more precise, the copy of the Rubaiyat that the nurse Jestyn gave to Alf in 1945, contains as you can see concealed codes. In and of itself I am sure there are those who have, shall we say, a fanciful imagination, who would make light of this find. BUT, and it is a really big 'BUT', this code is not only to be found in the Boxall Rubaiyat. It is also to be found on the Somerton Man 'Code page', the Torn Slip of paper with the words TAMAM SHUD printed on it, and one more place yet to be revealed.  The techniques used to recover microcode. vary depending on the nature of the concealment. In this case, I used Sodium Hypochlorite, (BLEACH) at 10% concentration. That is quite a strong solution and the liquid is very fast-acting so you need to make sure that you have the camera and lighting set up and ready. I diluted the liquid a little to obtain the results you see on this page.

Happy reading! And a question, DID ALF SIGN HIS WORK?


Here are the rest of the images fully marked up for you to see:




What you see above shows the code within the sleeve cuff decoration, the sash around the midriff, and of course within the ring on the little finger of the left hand...


The full image on the Inscription page is in fact entirely constructed using microcode letters and numbers. That means all of the outlines and all of the details of the clothing, the hands, the face, and the Fez, all of it with no exceptions. It is stunning work, having studied various concealment techniques for more than 10 years, I am qualified to say that.

2. THE FEZ


On the left is the FEZ and face part of the inscription page illustration. Even without marking or highlighting various parts of this image, you can clear;y see the presence of microcode throughout the FEZ.

In the image at the base of this page, you will see that the FEZ is coloured completely black. How then is it possible to recover the concealed codes as we obviously have here?

To capture this information the first thing you need to do is to take some good quality images, I used the Lumix 20-megapixel camera and camera from my Samsung S9 smartphone and as you can see the method provides some very good results. Next, I printed the images from my Lumix out at high DPI resolution and placed them on a decent backlit panel. Finally, I took images of the backlit photographs and used the simple Flash on the Samsung to bring out the best light I could.



But, there is far more to this image as you will see in the one below. I have highlighted the image to show additional extremely interesting examples of concealment. The tassels on the FEZ  and which extend into the body of the FEZ, then the curl which shows next to the right cheek and perhaps the most interesting examples are to be found in the construction of both the left and right eyes and eyebrows.




3. THE TITLE PAGE



Another fine example of concealment, I first found reference to this technique on an old CIA document that dated back to pre CIA days, 1911 I believe. In that particular document, they described how miniature writing could be concealed in the dividing lines found on the pages of books. The method shown here is not that dissimilar except the concealment is within the letters found on the title page. When examined I found that every typed letter on this page, right down to the smallest letters, contained code.


4. THE GRAPES


I have shown the image of the illustration of the grapes containing microcode on a number of occasions, earlier images whilst quite good lacked the finer details that I have been able to achieve now. I put it down to practice and learning new techniques, a never-ending task.

In this image we answer the question: DID ALF SIGN HIS WORK?


                                                                   



AND...



It does seem that Alf did indeed, sign his work. Well, at least it looks to be that he placed his initials into the grape indicated.

I have other images from these pages and they do contain clearer examples of concealed code as we have shown here.

Make no mistake, this is clearly clandestine communications, the techniques used in the field by undercover and illegal agents of all sides. Given the other circumstances of the Somerton Man case, my belief is that Alf and Jestyn were working for Australian Military intelligence and that she, Jestyn, had infiltrated the Australian Communist Party whilst she lived and worked in Sydney

The most stunning find is yet to be revealed, I hope to have that ready shortly.

SOMERTON MAN CODE EXPOSED: IN FACT THERE'S MORE THAN 1 CODE IN THE SOMERTON MAN MYSTERY. UPDATED 20th October


EXPOSED 

There are 4 codes associated with the Somerton Man case. In this post, we will look at the latest images from 3 of those codes: The SM Code Page, The Torn Slip, and the Boxall Rubaiyat

FROM THE TAMAM SHUD TORN PIECE:



Abpne is the image of the torn piece when seen through a microscope at Adelaide University. Take a good close look and not just the printed letters, look over and examine everything you see on the slip.

LETTERS 'T' & 'A'



LETTERS 'A' & 'M'







  

Torn Slip with micro code visible


With great respect, it  takes more than looking at the slip under a microscope. You might use a microscope to examine fibres and paper composition but if you are looking for something else such as concealments, you need to use a specific technique. And training for that is not readily available. There are experts in numerous fields out there, and again with great respect, being an expert in one field does not automatically make you an expert in others. I would have spent 10 years learning from case studies and articles as well as taking whatever courses I could find. Does that make me an expert in the field of clandestine communications and concealment? Others can be the judge of that.



CLOSEUP: LETTER M


LETTER M, LINE 1.




Back lit panel, flash Lumix camera. Sodium Hypochlorite. Micro code clearly seen. Currently working through and taking similar images of each letter and mark including crossed lines and staining.


BOXALL RUBAIYAT

This first image is a comparison shot taken of the midriff section of the illustration found on the 'Inscription page':


On the left is the clear image and on the right, I have highlighted two of the sections that show microcode written into the sash areas of the illustration. If you look closely you will see more, unmarked, code.

SOMERTON MAN CODE: CODE PAGE LINE 4: THE STRING AIAQ

 

AIAQ


In this post we'll take a look at the letters AIAQ from the 4th line of the Code page. I am leaving the letter C for the moment. Before we get  into the Post proper, the image above also gives a very clear view of the micro code found in the two crossed lines as you can see. We'll look at those lines in an upcoming post.

Here we go:

THE FIRST LETTER A:






THE LETTER 'I'

SECOND LETTER A:






THE LETTER Q:

Two more images of the Q to follow...

WHAT MIGHT THIS BE?

 

WHAT IS THIS?



This is one of a series of images taken a little while ago. 
It is a close up of the TAMAM SHUD torn piece.



Each letter in the words shows up with the same pattern but different detail so it's not repetitive. I know what it looks like but I am not 100% convinced at this stage.

As it happens I have a meeting tomorrow which might just throw some light on this issue.

Watch this space...

SOMERTON MAN MYSTERY: THE HANDLER & THE SPY: x3239 THE NURSES PHONE NUMBER FOUND?

 

THE NURSES PHONE NUMBER FOUND?
x3239


Is this the nurse's phone number? What I see from here is a string consisting of a small x followed by the number 3239. Yes, it's grainy and not that easy to make out but it is just discernable.


Importantly we know two things about the phone number on the back of the book. One is that Detective Brown told Professor Abbott that the number was in 'really tiny lettering'. The second thing that is known came in a discussion with Gerry Feltus some years ago, he told me that the number was found in the top right quartile of the page.

The area that was marked over at the top right of the page is where the numbers are to be found.


INSCRIPTION PAGE IMAGE

This next image is a close up of the illustration from the Alf Boxall copy of the Rubaiyat. You will be able to see letters and numbers written across the fez and in the details of the face, and all in miniature writing. This inscription is said to have been written by the nurse Jess.

THE HANDLER AND THE SPY. THE FINAL PROOF PART 3. THE SOMERTON MAN CODE PAGE LATEST: UPDATED NEW IMAGES ADDED OCTOBER 5th 2021

 UPDATED OCTOBER 5th 2021

SOMERTON MAN CODE PAGE

MICROCODE SHOWING...


TO GET A CLEARER VIEW OF THE CODE PAGE, ON YOUR MOBILE/CELL PHONE JUST ZOOM IN AND FOCUS ON ANY AREA OF THE PAGE. THE SO-CALLED 'CROSSED OUT' LINE 2, MAY NOT BE CROSSED OUT, IT MAY BE THAT THE LINE WAS THERE BEFORE THE LETTERS WERE PUT IN PLACE. 

THE TWO CROSSED LINES IN THE CENTRE SHOW QUITE A LOT OF DETAIL AS DO THE LAST 6 LETTERS ON THE LAST LINE.

I WILL BE ADDING CLOSE-UP IMAGES, WITH LIGHTING, TO THIS POST LATER TODAY 4TH OCTOBER 2021.

ALF BOXALL & JESTYN

I would like to make it very clear that in my view, Alf and Jestyn were involved in an Australian intelligence programme and had been since at least 1944 which was the time mentioned and noted by the interviewer Stuart Littlemore. Their work from what I can gather was extremely dangerous at times and to use Alf's words, Jess was a very courageous woman.

Was there some involvement in the death of the Somerton Man? At the very least, and again in my view, Australian Intelligence services played some part in the case, precisely what that part was may never be fully known.

What can be said is that the presence of what was then a top-secret British MI6 clandestine communication method in the Boxall copy of the Rubaiyat, here on the Somerton Man Code page and we will see, also within the letters of the torn piece with the words TAMAM SHUD, strongly suggests that the intelligence services were in some way involved.


IMAGES ADDED

Image of the central lower part of the code page





Same Image Marked Up


In the image above you can clearly see the presence of microcode within the larger letters.


In the image to the right, you can see part of the 'crossed lines' some larger letters and then what appears to be part of a 'flourish' at the base. Watch what happens when we invert the image, as shown next:




You can now see that whoever wrote the microcode, inverted the page to make it easier to write. I think that this means whoever wrote it was definitely right-handed. You can try this yourself with the lower part of the letter S.

You can also see that they used the same approach to write the microcode at the base of the page, they clearly inverted the page because they weren't able to write from the base. It had to be done from the top down. The same applies to the upper line from the crossed lines.

The image below is a close-up of the lower crossed line, the microcode was written from the base of the page. The string of letters and numbers run left to right and are slped slightly forward.

















The Code Page image above is the best that has been shown here on the blog.  the source of this particular example was the version of the code page recommended by Nick Pelling some 18 months or more ago, it is known as the Varallo version. His comment was that there was no microcode to be found or words to that effect. Nick has over the years said similar things and on each occasion, he has been proven wrong. This occasion is no different, his failure this time being quite spectacular as you can see. No hard feelings Nick. This version is a scan of the 400 dpi version found on the Adelaide University wiki page and reprinted/saved at 1200 dpi.
