Tom and Heather

This what Feltus had to say about Boxall.

He was patient, experienced, capable, he would never be drawn into a conversation when it related to intelligence and was more than capable of steering the conversation to another topic.

You could imagine these conversations taking place around a beer garden table at the Clifton Gardens.

It was during one of his visits Boxall first met Harkness. He was having a quiet drink when Heather, the girlfriend of Tom Musgrave, a fellow officer from Queensland, introduced him to her.

Paul Lawson believes Small Ships Lieutenant Engineer Boxall and Nurse Harkness were in the business of exchanging covert messages when Boxall was stationed at Georges Head.

We ask, is it possible that ..

Small Ships Lieutenant Engineer Musgrave and Nurse Heather were also in the business of exchanging covert messages when Musgrave was stationed at Georges Head ?

    Not buying the innocent cutesy act of Boxall. He was up to his ears in intrigue.

    You could well be correct, Ellen. Alf’s replies to Littlemore’s questions, made me think of a man, caught on a high wire act, doing a balancing act between being truthful and dishonest. Clive

    Why would he subject himself to Littlemore’s questioning at all? Never could stand that pompous buffoon Littlemore.

    Probably wanted to go on record, in 1978, to deny any knowledge of the SM case, apart from Jestyn. Then again, he might have taken part in the programme, simply to have “sensed” what Littlemore and others may have been wanting to find out about his background. Alf was a wily old fox.

    Spin. How amusing!! They thought Alf was the Somerton Man but lo and behold he winds up alive. It connects two memes. Somerton Man and the Rubaiyat. A macabre mystery becomes an amusement and Alf turns into a footnote.
