It took a few hours, but the code Mr. Justice Smith embeddedin his ruling in the DaVinci Code case has been cracked. Thecipher reads, "Smithy Code Jackie Fisher who are youDreadnought." This is a reference to Admiral Jackie Fisherwho was responsible for the great British battleship theDreadnought, which was launched a hundred years ago. JusticeSmith believes that Fisher, who modernized the British navy,has been overlooked by history.
