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.

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!
