“Tonight When The Moon Rises The Whole World Will Turn To Silver”
That is a line from the radio transmission heard by No.6 whilst sitting on the outlook atop of the cliffs. It has been assumed, by me amongst others as well as No.6, for it was that message which sent him down to the beach looking for a sign from his world. A light, a boat, a plane, that the message was meant for the dead man found on the beach. Well of course it might have been, but clearly that radio message was not meant for No.6, and perhaps it wasn't even meant for the dead man on the beach.
Because if you look at one particular line contained within that message "If our torment is to end, if liberty is to be restored, we must grasp the nettle even though it makes our hands bleed" which suggests that the message might be transmitted somewhere within the Village, as it contains words such as "torment" and "liberty." Is it not more likely that whilst No.6 was tuning in that radio, he picked up a message transmitted from a country somewhere behind the Iron Curtain,
, or Hungary for example. Such messages were always transmitted in English to the free world, so is this such an example, a message transmitted from somewhere behind the Iron Curtain? If it is then No.6 is wasting his time down on the beach, because no-one is coming. And at the evry least, if soemone had been coming, they've found soemthing more importnat to do than to extrecate one of their agents from the Village! Bulgaria
I'll be seeing you
