“Aborigines at Garden Point mission, near the Northernmost tip of Australia, have reported seeing a ‘flying saucer.’
An unidentified object flying at ‘tremendous speed’ was seen in the sky at daylight over Shark Bay, Melville Island, a few days ago.
The natives called Brother G. Clark, mission superintendent, who also saw the object.
Brother Clark and the natives said they all saw a ‘flying saucer’ in level flight, trailing flame and smoke, as it disappeared northward.
Brother Clark has reported the incident to naval intelligence.
The natives had not previously heard of a ‘flying saucer.’ ”
