Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Bagan Dalam Penang, Malaysia, in 1959, at an unknown time, several students playing in a swampy area near riverbank saw a tiny man like figure dressed like a soldier and apparently armed. They reported the encounter to their teacher. No other information.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Ahmad Jamaluddin, A Summary of UFO and related Events in Malaysia 50/80.

Points to consider:

This one-sentance report is of little value; the man's size is not reported quantitatively, only qualitatively. He is described as being a soldier with a weapon, hence it is possible that the young people just saw a midget-size soldier. There is no reasoned connection with the matter of UFOS.
