Australia’s Day has become damned for Jim and Nancy Beaumont: a national holiday turned into a terrible tragedy for them. On January 26, 1966, they sent their children to the beach of the Glenelg resort coast, hoping that nine-year-old Jane would take care of the younger Arn and Grant according to family tradition. The children left on the bus at ten in the morning to return home by noon.At the appointed time, they did not appear, and Nancy thought that the children were returning from the beach on foot and were a little late. However, anxiety did not leave her, and she panicked when more than three hours passed.

Evening came, and the children did not return. Rushing from work, Jim, along with Nancy rushed to search. Desperate, poor parents filed a police report. The search for children was carried out throughout South Australia, but all attempts to detect even the slightest traces were unsuccessful. The version that the children could have drowned did not receive evidence. In this strange and mysterious affair there was a certain blond man, a young man who was allegedly seen alongside Jane, Arna and Grant.

The behavior of the children seen in the Wenzel confectionery shop remained completely incomprehensible. Here they bought several pies and a cake, paying with a one-pound note, although, as Nancy claimed, she gave out eight shillings and six pence for out-of-pocket expenses.

On August 25, 1915, a whole British regiment with officers, storming the positions of the Turkish army under Gallipoli, entered the forest and disappeared from view.No shots were heard, not the slightest rustle: 267 people disappeared without a trace. The reports of the British company said that the regiment absorbed the fog of unknown origin. But this hasty conclusion only confused the situation. Of course, it was easier to blame the Turkish military for this dark matter: they say that they killed a bunch of people in an unknown way. However, none of them even knew about the existence of such a unit. The British, being victorious, began the search for the Norfox Regiment.

At first, they were very lucky: on the battlefield, they found cockades, boots, and shoulder straps for servicemen who confirmed their belonging to the missing unit. And having found hundreds of corpses in the same village, they hurried to say that the regiment was heroically killed in battle. Although even with the naked eye it was possible to notice some inconsistencies. For example, the impression was that the dead were dropped from a great height. This was evidenced by numerous fractures on the corpses, their dispersion over the territory.

In the early 70s of the last century, when the archives for the mysterious disappearance of the Norfox Regiment became public, a real boom began in the scientific world.Each of the scientists put forward his hypothesis of a historical incident. But all, figuratively speaking, the British ufology surpassed. They claimed that the cloud of obscure origin was a UFO. Like, part of the regiment was killed by aliens, and the other was taken with them.
