You interstaters will just have to look him up.

He has been disinterred for DNA analysis.

Will this 80 year old mystery finally be solved?

Fuck

I cannot get over the synchronicity of what I read, purely by chance, from my library selections ..with words I read or hear within 24-48 hrs elsewhere.

There was a recent teev on Somerton Man.... perhaps Australia's most mysterious death. He remains unknown... labels removed from clothes.. no id nothing... a body found on a beach in SA.

So synchronicity.......
Just finished reading a Kathy Reichs novel... a Conspiracy of Bones.

In her Acknowledgments she refers to the Somerton Man. !!

I finished it last night. I knew about the Somerton Man so was surprised to see it in her afterword, and NOW
you bring it up.! The next day.

I can't tell you how often things fall into some strange continuency/ confluency in my life.
Coincidence just doesn't cut it.

Yesterday i went for a shop for no particular reason, except I wanted to go to a particular small local centre. I was thinking about getting some fish and chips for dinner from the best local place.

It has A Lifeline shop at which I often find useful stuff. I wasn't going there in my mind, so after the wandering somewhat confused shop, I got back to the car, and after depositing said shopping ,.. thought OH might as well have a look.......

In my mind ..the one thing I needed was a pair of boots. Had been going to buy some workboots new .. mucho dinero...(relatively) for some time now.

..so wandered in .. looked up and saw a black lace-up boot size 7 .. may have been tried on before, but little or no use.
Bargain.. $8 .. new pair of boots. :thumb
Not leather but what do you expect for $8? Didn't take them off.. wore them home. Comfy as. But sigh Made in China. Worth ?? about $8 , and the lives of the slaves that likely made them.

I was told, after I purchased them , that the boot had only just been put up there.

About 20 years too late and anyway, true, Holt swam out to a Chinese sub, thought everybpdy knew that?

Don't you just wonder..? Conspiracy theories are evrywhere.

Personally I think he just drowned and his body lost to the sea.

It's Occam's Razor, isn't it.?

Of course, the old idiot dived into waters too rough for diving and currents/tides dragged him out to sea.
