Westall and a possible "broken arrow"

Dear readers

In a post about the 6 Apr 1966 Westall case (click here) I speculated about the very remote possibility that the event might have involved a "broken arrow" (click here). A number of readers posted responses to my article stating that they found the hypothesis of no value.

At the end of the post I posed questions, including "Did any of the Westall witnesses recall seeing military personnel using geiger counters?" This question was raised in the spirit of testing the "broken arrow" hypothesis. It would seem that no one who replied to the post, bothered to check out the available published material and see if  any Westall witnesses had made such observations.

I have waited until now to provide the following. In Bill Chalker's 1996 book "Oz Files" there is a section on pages 116-121 about the Westall incident. Bill states that Ray Fischer of the Victorian UFO Research Society had met a man who visited the site on both the day of the event, and a few days later. Fischer states that "He saw that people in uniform were examining the circle with radiation detectors."

The same information is available on the Yahoo Westall groups website here .

  1. Hi Pauline,

    The man Ray Fischer was referring to is Kevin Hurley, who appears in the Westall '66 documentary. Another witness in the doco, Les Medew also recalls seeing uniformed men examining a circle on the ground with what may have been a geiger counter on the same day as the sighting - 6 April 1966.

    Cheers
