Title: Japanese Spies at East Point? - 1942
Name: Smith, Tom
My Story: It was at East Point that a significant event took place. When we were mapping (from Noonamah) early in our stay, we had visited this home, reputed to be the H.Q. of the pearling fleet. On each visit we refilled our water bottles (the purpose of the visit). Near the home was a fort on the beach with guns facing out to sea. On this particular visit we were held up by a gun after knocking on the door. We were refused any water and the situation was hostile. The matter was immediately reported to Area H.Q. who sent the Military Police and Intelligence to check out the situation. It appears that a secret transmitter was being used at the time of our arrival. Fully up to date maps were found on the premises which were better than the maps we were using. There was some resistance before the offenders were caught.
