This Post will be updated with sharper images on 1st August.Some while ago I did some work on the code page using UV lighting and this is an extension of that original post plus some other images from Verse 70..
UV reveals more than normal lighting and separates colours particularly well. On this page you will see examples of microwrting from the Code page and from Jestyn's Verse 70, whilst some of examples are faded, they are visible and more work is planned to lift and enhance what you currently see.
Code Page ExamplesThis is the second letter A from line 4 of the code page, the microwriting is quite clear under UV and in its normal B/W appearance.
Verse 70 Examples
I will be posting comparison images using another example of pen and ink cursive handwriting from 1944 in the next few days.
Clandestine CommunicationsThis is the first time that we have both code page and verse 70 in the same post with both showing microwriting. Given this information, what this demonstrates is a knowledge of microwriting in what is termed 'clandestine communications' that links Alf Boxall, Jestyn and the code page which in turn is linked to the Somerton Man. or those interested, if you google the term you will find a vast amount of information on the subject, there's even something there for my sparring partner Nick Pelling.
A message for Byron, great work on the oblique writing, it was good to read of your approach and to come to the conclusion that that was the process used to take the image of the code page. As you would expect I have some differing views but I respect your work. I noticed that you actually took some pics, if you would like to post them here please email me or leave a comment and I would be happy to put them up with credits to you of course.
On the image of the letter B I have pointed out two markings surrounding what appears to be micro numbers, not sure where those circular markings came from, they could be from the original or the could be digital artefacts.
Whilst UV light has differing results for indented writing, when it comes to any form of coloured writing it performs quite well as you will see in the images below.
