Reports:

[Ref. bb1:] GERARD BARTHEL AND JACQUES BRUCKER:

The two authors quote the newspaper "La Vendée Libre" for November 14, 1954:

"La Roche-sur-Yon (85). Time: 7 o'clock.

"Mrs Albert, employee at La Ménagère by Mr. Morillon, has seen what is commonly refered to as a flying saucer."

"- I was going to the hairdresser, when, while passing the Sadi-Carnot street, I saw a large luminous ball. It was of every colors and seemed to pass at a very high altitude and at the speed of a lightning. I saw it above the house of Mrs Larmanjat. It was going towards the circular place. The machine did not make any noise and did not leave any trace of smoke behind itself."

"... Apparently it is one of these flying saucers which so puzzle our citizens."
