Summary
In 1932-33 five Japanese and three Europeans were killed by Aborigines and Thomson volunteered to investigate. He departed May 1935 for eastern Arnhem Land and stayed in the region until September 1937. This is the first report he filed on his expedition, one which would result in the restoration of peaceful relations between the native Yolngu people and the Commonwealth government
