Well, this doc along with Dart verifying it, is interesting indeed...........I remember when this came out. Hubbard was absolutely foaming at the mouth.
The "perpetrators" were all based in the Portsmouth area and involved members of David & Shiela Gaiman's family.
David Gaiman and (I believe) Tony Dunlevy were dispatched to recover the missing materials. They saw them in the back of a car and smashed the rear window to get them. This was their "making a blow against the enemy" step.
I know that certain members of a NY group were subjected to the same insane treatment as well.
All in all, this was a fairly insane time in Scn. (even by todays standards). Heavy ethics was being applied to public and staff alike. Chain lockers, handcuffs, imprisonment in cabins, armed guards, it was a madhouse on board.
Aside from the R2-45, it's the first thing I've seen acknowledging and "ordering" use of reverse processing, directly from LRH. With everything else we've seen and heard, it's more than evident that reverse processing wasn't some bright idea which DM came up with.
This is gold! - A good find! Thanks for posting!
