JANUARY 1965, CENTRAL TASMANIA, TASMANIA, AUSTRALIA, A MAN:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Well-known Australien ufologist Bill Chalker, during his heard a number of quite unusual stories, not necessarily connected to UFOs, but sometimes ending in ufology catalogues all the same.

He indicates that in January, 1965, in Central Tasmania, Australia, a man who had hunted in the area for years was stalking deers near a marsh area when a "man in dark clothing" suddenly appeared "out of nowhere" beside him, and stayed with him for a walk of about 150 yards down to the marsh.

The hunter tried in vain to engage the man in conversation. He saw that the man seemed to have an incredibly old face marked by cracks and wrinkles, "like a skeleton with skin on it." He wore a big dark military coat with light epaulettes.

At the edge of the marsh, the hunter turned to the man and asked what he wanted, in vain. He then looked down, and was shocked to see that the man had no feet. Then the man vanished.

The next day, the hunter reportedly questioned an oldtimer who told him of a ghost with no legs, also in military style uniform and epaulettes. Amazingly, the encounter took place near an area called Leg-O-Man Marsh.

Narratives:

[Ref. bc1:] BILL CHALKER:

Bill Chalker indicates that In January, 1965, in Central Tasmania, Australia, a man who had hunted in the area for years, was stalking deer near marsh area when a "man in dark clothing" suddenly appeared "out of nowhere" beside him and stayed with him in the walk, of about 150 yards, down to the marsh. The hunter tried to no avail to engage this man in conversation. He saw that the man seemed to have an incredibly old face marked by cracks and wrinkles, "like a skeleton with skin on it." The man wore a big dark military coat with light epaulettes. At the edge of the marsh, the hunter turned to the man and asked what he wanted, in vain. He then looked down, and was shocked to see that the man had no feet. Then the man vanished.

The next day, the hunter questioned an old timer who told him of a ghost with no legs. He found that this ghost also had a military style uniform and epaulettes. Amazingly, the encounter took place near an area called Leg-O-Man Marsh.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near Table Mountain, Central Tasmania, Australia, in January 1965 late in the afternoon, a hunter was stalking deer near the marsh area when a man in dark clothing suddenly appeared out of nowhere beside him and stayed with him in the walk, of about 150 yards, down to the marsh. The hunter tried to no avail to engage this man in conversation. He saw that the man seemed to have an incredibly old face marked by cracks and wrinkles, "like a skeleton with skin on it." The man wore a big dark military coat with light epaulettes. At the edge of the marsh the hunter turned to the man and asked to no avail what he wanted. He then looked down and was shocked to see that the man had no feet. Then the man vanished.
