Go Back Report # 716


       As with UFOs, our mysterious submarines have a history going back more than forty years. A group of fishermen in Morecambe Bay, England, reported one such oddity in March, 1938. "I saw a sudden scurry of seabirds rise off the water," witness William Baxter told the Liverpool Echo (March 29, 1938), "and I looked at a spot nearly a mile away. Out of the water there rose something large and black, like a big post. It was at least eight or nine feet high, and it rose and fell three times, then disappeared. I've been all over the world, but I have never seen anything like this!"
