Reports of physical mediumship go back centuries, and physical mediums such as D. D. Home, Franek Kluski, Leslie flint, and more latterly, David Thompson, are becoming household names in psychical research. Experiments such as Scole and Professor W. J. Crawford’s Goligher Circle have demonstrated that physical psychic phenomena does indeed exist.

One medium not so well known in the West is Australia’s Stan Walsh. Stan was arguably that country’s most talented physical medium during the early part of the 20th century.

His mission began in 1919 when he and a group of friends got together in a Melbourne suburb and tried to communicate with the spirit world. 

Walsh was a deep-trance medium, a rare breed, then and now. The communicators were generally Christian in tone, and at one point they advised Walsh and his sitters to no longer refer to themselves as Spiritualists, “since frauds and charlatans are bringing the religion into disrepute.”  The guides suggested they simply call themselves ‘followers of the truth of God’.

The communicators often claimed to be biblical characters, such as John the Baptist, King David, Samuel, John the Most Beloved, Mary Magdalene, and others.  The New Testament advises us, Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.1 John: 4.1. Walsh’s sitters tested the spirits and most became convinced the communicators were who they said they were.

In 1927 L.C. Danby joined the circle and became a regular sitter for many years.  This book is his account of those years, and the incredible mediumship of Stan Walsh.


About the author

(1899 – 1985)

Leslie Charles Danby was born in Fitzroy, Melbourne in 1899. At the age of 19, he became an entertainer in vaudeville, appearing in theatres all over Australia and New Zealand. At that time, he was a self-confessed atheist. He married a soubrette (singer/dancer), Winnie. While Winnie was giving birth to their first child, both Winnie and the baby girl died. Les was devastated.

Whilst sitting at his young wife’s graveside at St. Kilda cemetery, contemplating what type of headstone to buy, he clearly heard his wife’s voice say, “Don’t bother dear. I am not there.”

This first experience of clairaudience shocked Les. He mentioned it to a trusted friend, who in turn revealed he had started going to a spiritualist circle where the medium went into trance and channelled souls who had passed over, providing the sitters proof of survival. He suggested Les attend the next meeting. To Les’s amazement, Winnie came through, speaking of personal things only he could possibly know. That evening changed Les Danby’s life forever.

The Orpheus Motif in North America: The Comanche tradition – To give the reader a general idea of the form taken by the Orpheus tradition in North America, I reproduce the version of the Comanche Indians, here published for the first time. It was communicated to me orally by the late Dr Ralph Linton, who noted it down in the course of his field-studies among the Comanche (1933). Particular interest attaches to the Comanche narrative, for it is the first recorded Orpheus tradition from the more easterly Shoshonean groups. No account is given of it in Wallace and Hoebel’s Comanche monograph, which is otherwise a valuable source for the religion and folklore of this tribe. Read here
