Fact of the Day: Harold Holt

Harold Holt was Prime Minister of Australia from 1966 until his death in 1967. While most heads of state have been protected far more than the average person, Harold Holt died while swimming in the ocean (under rough conditions) and his body was never found.

  4. Yes, very strange but he was a surfing and skin diving advocate
    or on this particular day, a "nutter".
    It was at a military (naval) base with restricted access.
    It has been suggested that he was under severe strain with Australia's involvement in the Vietnam War.........something that he drew round condemnation with his "All the Way with LBJ" speech
    of support initially.
    I suspect he was taken by a great white shark............that area
    has plenty of the monsters in the waters.

    You can forget about the ridiculous Chinese Submarine theory.....a load of hogwash!
    You can google all this for more details, theories and conspiracies.
