Damn, it's for things like this that open and civilized discussion are nice. My source for this information was Historian Claudio Suenaga masters' degree thesis. Since Suenaga is a very competent researcher, and he informed the case was not mentioned in the book, I didn't bother to check. Alas, I should have, at least the name of the author! It seems you too made the lapse, Martin, since the author of the authoritative references on the history of the Brazilian Navy during the world wars, referenced by you as evidence of his seriousness, was also brother Arthur Oscar, and not the Captain Jose dos Santos we want to know more about. <snip> >Perhaps Portuguese speakers on this List with access to the book >could take another look and check in case it does indeed contain >a reference? I'm buying that book today, especially since you found this reference to the fact it does mention the sighting, even if it's authored by Arthur Oscar. Great find, Martin!
