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: MICRO CODE: CLOSE UP & CLEAR: Crossed lines & Verse 70


The new camera lens and lighting has helped to lift the code images. I used the authentic version of the code as originally supplied by the Adelaide Advertiser to Gerry Feltus 

Slightly hazy but still about legible, the writing is very small and almost whispy in nature, it may take a few moments for your eyes to focus. Remember that you are viewing something that your eyes are simply not used to seeing.

Extract from Verse 70 below was written into a copy of the Rubaiyat for Alf Boxall by Jestyn.

For those following the full story here on this blog, in the FBI file interview with Harry Gold, he stated that the packages of documents handed to him by Klaus Fuchs were all in very small handwriting. Yet again very small handwriting makes an appearance, Detective Brown stated that Jestyn's phone number was found on the back of the book and was in tiny handwriting. In addition we have shown that the Hay Internment Camp banknotes contain micro code in the signatures. By default, this also means that Fedosimov was aware of very small/micro writing.

The bigger picture is coming together and more will be posted shortly. I apologise for the slowness of the appearance of posts, Clive and I have been working on a number of leads that have cropped up during the research.
