...In 1994, one of the Polish media have published an article of journalist A. Birch that Danish fishermen faced in the North sea with a very strange and mysterious "catch". At some point on the surface of the water near their fishing vessel surfaced diver. Having launched our lifeboat, the fishermen soon raised the boat a man with some kind of antiquated diving suit, which can be seen except in the newsreels of yesteryear. The fishermen even suspected that somewhere nearby is filming.

But man, freed from his underwater suit, behaved quite strange. He excitedly spoke something in English and was clearly very surprised by what happened, as if he suspected the fishermen in some kind of fraud or hoax (something the fishermen could understand his incoherent babble).

Further strange, the diver was taken ashore, and here they took special service. As explained by the security forces the "hero" of this mysterious story, he was a diver named Ashley Roberval who participated in the rescue of a sunken ship "Findhorn". 5 September 1929, he once again went under the water, and when he emerged on the surface, neither of his cruiser or friends nearby have not found, and picked it up, ultimately, by some fishermen.

After clarification of all circumstances of the case, to the surprise of the investigators, it was found that in August 1929 (65 years ago) in the North sea really sank the ship "Findhorn", and in September of the same year was organized the rescue operation ended in failure (the ship was unable to lift). The failure was in the fact that in the course of her missing diver named Ashley Rebarber – it was not able to find...


Yet, the earliest mention of this case, which so far managed to find is a book by Nicholas Nepomniachtchi "ANTHOLOGY of the UNKNOWN Unknown, the inexplicable, the incredible Book 2" , released in 1998:

Finally, in 1994 Polish edition of the "Scandals" reported one amazing case, the person movement in time from past to present. The author notes "Floated from the past?" A. birch told readers the following:

"The Danish fishing vessel was in the North sea. The weather was calm, visibility good. And suddenly the lookout noticed that near boiling water. Lowered the boat and went to examine a strange place.

Suddenly from under the water a man in a suit antediluvian 20 years. I climbed into the boat, he took off his fancy headgear and fun looked at the sailors. But, apparently suspecting something was wrong, muttered something in English...

When the swimmer was taken to the mainland, he said that in the rescue team, the British Navy takes part in raising the wreck of the "Findhorn". Thus terribly was surprised at all he saw around him, and assured that came to the bottom on 5 September 1929.

Crazy? Maybe. But "Findhorn" really sank in this area in August 1929. Moreover, Ashley Renderwall (as presented diver) told all the details of this forgotten history, even down to the names of the rescuers and the contents of the holds of the cruiser. He did not know only that an attempt to raise the ship failed, and one of the rescuers — someone Ashley Rebarber! — missing, not returning to regular immersion".

Versions testing, their confirmation or refutation. Additional information, notes during the study of materials

Source of information nazywany "Polish newspaper "Scandals"" does not look very reputable. To find it or mention of this case in another press of those years (or at least modern reprints and articles) have not yet succeeded.
