What happened on Somerton Beach and in Adelaide from 1902 to 1966+?
Why was the Somerton Man in Adelaide?
Take me to the Index Page please!
To backtrack and brush up on what this case is about, go to Wikipedia here
This is Malcolm Anstice Rafferty.
I mention Malcolm in the post Memory of an Elephant, or a Scot! (#19)
Malcolm had a varied career, and life. And he had almost as many jobs as the reader has had hot meals. Well, it seems that way!
And the number of Police charge sheets ran a close second to the number of jobs he had.
During the WWII years he lists his occupation as a Draughtsman at #5 position above.
So, are these the tools of a draughtsman?
3 x H lead pencils and a sharpener.
The brands were 2 x Royal Sovereign (Royal Sovereign Pencil Co) and 1 x Alexandra (B S Cohen).
The B S Cohen pencil is the oldest as the B S Cohen organisation became Arthur Johnson’s then it became Royal Sovereign Pencil Co.
H leads are extremely smudge-resistant and give cleaner lines, making them useful for things such as outlines, technical drawings and light sketches. Left-handed pencil users can also take advantage of smudge-resistant H leads.
