The video is quite interesting with the Tintin animations - sadly my Spanish isn't up to understanding what they are saying! :lol:

Re: WELCOME! Read this second.

Well done Grahame, I hope now that you have gone to the bother of resurecting the forum that dowsers will use it and dowsers will post on it.

Re: Dowsing in "Herge's Adventures of Tintin"

Another letter of attestation from the Mertens book, from a Mme Barbier of Etterbeek. Dated 27 July 1940. (p.275, modern reprint) She has had news of her husband whom she has been to see in a hospital in Antwerp where he is being treated. She confirms that during the course of her consultation with ...

Re: Dowsing in "Herge's Adventures of Tintin"

Was there any actual confirmation that the body exhumed was actually the husband? Did the widow positively identify it (a gruesome and traumatic task I guess), or was there some personal item that she recognised? Without something like that, this story is no better than hearsay. Of course nowadays ...

Re: Dowsing in "Herge's Adventures of Tintin"

Just been reading another of the examples from the letters of atttestation printed in the Victor Mertens book. (see the modern reprint, pp.298-301) In this particular example Mertens was first contacted late in 1940 by a Mrs Decafmeyer who was concerned about the whereabouts of her son. Using his pe...

Re: Dowsing in "Herge's Adventures of Tintin"

Just been translating one of the many letters of attestation given in the appendix of the Victor Mertens book. It seems that the enquirer, a M. Jules Crahay, had asked about a missing lady. Victor Mertens had dowsed and replied that she had been killed during the bombing of Dunkirk. Mertens also dow...

Wow, good find, Ian!
You are correct on the Hartmann & Curry grids - Curry was actually 'discovered' by Siegfried Wittman in 1950 according to this site, and Hartmann in 1954.
Worth further investigation I think!. :P

Re: Dowsing in "Herge's Adventures of Tintin"

A random peruse in the coffee shop and I came across what appears to be a reference to an energy grid, discovered by a monsieur F. Orcel from his "La Radiesthesie agricole" (1939) Quote from the Mertens book: "une série de bandes se dirigeant que la Terre comporte habituellement de l'Est a l'Ouest, ...
