By P. V. ["Procès Verbal", written report] No. 482 of 10.10.1954, the Gendarmerie of [Blackened out] (Oise) reported that on 6.10.1954 around 8 p.m. Mr. [Blackened out] residing [Blackened out] observed for about 40 minutes from 8:10 pm to 8:00 p.m. to 8:50 p.m. a luminous disc of orange red color with an apparent diameter of half the full moon, supporting a kind of nacelle. This apparition, whose luminous intensity was variable, and which was alternately extinguished and relighted several times, seemed to be above Senlis, and moved very slowly to the right in relation to the point of observation.

The family of Mr. [Blackened out], composed of his wife, his 2 sons and his daughter-in-law, also observed this phenomenon.

By P. V. No. 553 of 19.10.1954, the Gendarmerie of [Blackened out] (Oise) reported that on 18.10.1954 Mrs [Blackened out] and her friend [Blackened out] riding a bicycle between FONTENAY TORCY and SAINT SAMSON LA POTERIE saw a gear shaped as a "cigar" going at a prodigious speed from west to east, then falling vertically. This craft had a white headlight at the front, while orange-red flames arose at the rear. For a few seconds, the area (in a hollow) was illuminated on 2 to 3 square kilometers. 300 meters farther away, the woman, who had felt severe headaches from the moment she saw in the headlight of her bicycle a strange "man" standing motionless on the side of the road, she felt her legs paralyzed. According to Mr. [Blackened out], who followed her, and also saw the "man", she passed only at few centimeters of the "man".

Description of the "man": size 1m. approximately, black face, helmeted head, strong corpulence, leather jacket with brilliant highlights. The light rays of his eyes gave the sensation of emitting electric shocks paralyzing the legs of the 2 cyclists and causing them violent headaches.

The two witnesses experienced intense fright. These people are reputed to be of a serious nature and do not indulge in drinking.

Mr. [Blackened out], residing at [Blackened out], stated that at the same time, on his return from work, he had seen the "cigar" descending vertically; he also declared that the region had been lit up like in broad daylight for 2 seconds.

By P. V. No. 752 of 23.10.1954, the Gendarmerie [Blackened out] (S.I.) reports that on 19.10, from 9.30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Mrs. [Blackened out] and her daughter [Blackened out], observed from their window a strange luminous display. The [Blackened out] housing is a dependence of the castle of EU, it is in elevation of 12 meters with respect to the Boulevard Hélène.

In the direction of the côte d'Ault, also called Côte Saint Valéry, about 1 km. 500 of their observation point, these people saw bright gleams

seeming to come from a terrestrial point. The night was very dark, there was wind and it had rained heavily. The lights became stronger and stronger and dazzling, the source remaining fixed. At one point luminous spots were launched from the source in various directions, these "flares" formed red circles, spinning and returning to their starting base. This "luminous ballet" seems to have taken place exclusively on the ground.

The ladies are not subject to hallucinations, they are calm and sensible, the girl was raised at the College of EU until the age of 18, she is in possession of the B.E. [Brevet d'Etudes] and speaks English and German.

From the road bridge over the Bresle, people saw unusual lights in the direction of the Côte de Saint Valéry but could not observe the "ballet".

A chief electrician of the E.D.F. to whom the gendarmes asked for his opinion, thinks that at the indicated places two high voltage power lines are crossing in the fields, the humidity resulting from the heavy rain could cause a powerful electric arc and several colors. He does not explain the phenomenon of revolving lights.

By P.V. n° 159/4 of 23.10.1954 the Section of Gendarmerie of [Blackened out], reports that the 21.10.154 at 07:30 p.m., the Maréchal des Logis Chef [Blackened out] and the Gendarme [Blackened out] of the Brigade of [Blackened out] observed a luminous phenomenon as they circulated between Andres and Guines, heading towards Guines.

They saw a very bright luminous trail crossing the sky at low altitude and at very high speed following a strictly horizontal trajectory oriented N-S.

The thing had the shape of a cone, point forward, from 200 to 300 m. long and with a diameter of 2 to 10 m., the base of the cone being prolonged by a multitude of sparks - altitude 400 to 500 m. No noise emitted - brightness of lightning bolts. The phenomenon was visible for 15 seconds at most.

[Ref. lo1:] CORAL AND JIM LORENZEN:

The authors indicate that a mass sighting of an object took place at about 8:40 P.M. on the night of October 18 in Fontenay-Forcy [Torcy], France, where a man and his wife saw a glowing cigar-shaped object of a reddish color in flight. It suddenly dived toward them and landed not far from the road but hidden from sight by the surrounding brush. The couple walked to the top of a hill. Where they found themselves face-to-face with a human-shaped being about three feet tall, who wore a helmet. The "eyes" appeared to glow an orange color. One of the witnesses lost consciousness. Four other witnesses reported observing the machine in flight at the same time as the couple from another location. A third group of independent witnesses in Sanson-la-Poterie observed the craft as it flew away at high speed, and low altitude, illuminating the countryside.

[Ref. jv1:] JACQUES VALLEE:

The author indicates that on October 18, 1954 in Fontenay-Torcy, a man and his wife reported that they had seen a red object in the shape of a cigar in the sky. The object suddenly dove towards them while leaving a reddish trail behind, and landed behind bushes.

When the witnesses reached the ridge of a hill, they were face to face with "a corpulent individual, of human appearance", but of only one meter in height. The individual carried a helmet and his eyes shone of an orange gleam. One of the two witnesses fainted.

The author adds that four people saw this object flying away from another place and a third group of witnesses in Sanson-la-Poterie, another city, saw "the crew flying away" at "an extraordinary speed" in direction of the west and the countryside was illuminated on an extent of two kilometers.

Oct. 18, 1954, 08:40 P.M. Fontenay-Torcy (France).

Mr. and Mrs. Lherminier saw a cigar-shaped red object dive toward them with a reddish trail and land near the road. Upon reaching the top of the hill, they were confronted with a bulky human figure, about 1 m tall. The creature wore a helmet and his eyes were glowing with an orange light. One witness fainted on the spot. Four others saw the object in flight from separate locations. The countryside was illuminated over 2 or 3 km. (Personal; Magonia).

[Ref. gl1:] CHARLES GARREAU AND RAYMOND LAVIER:

The authors indicate that on October 18, 1954, at 08:45 in the Oise in Fontenay-Torcy, a cyclist, Mrs. Lherminier, travels on country road 133 towards Saint-Samson-la-Poterne. Within 500 meters of Fontenay, she sees a luminous craft coming from the west and moving towards the east. Mrs. Lherminier evaluates its altitude as 200 meters. It has the shape of a long cigar of 3 to 4 meters. At its front, a white headlight which illuminates the area on a surface from 3 to 4 square kilometers. At its back, a red trail. It seems to be illuminated on its circumference. It goes down vertically, like an elevator, and lands in a meadow. Although impressed, Mrs. Lherminier continues riding her bicycle. She still rides 300 meters approximately. On the side of the road, she then sees a strange being. It is hardly 1 meter tall. It wears a leather jacket with a drill plate which has brilliant reflections. Its face is black. It is capped with a helmet and is squat.

Mrs. Lherminier passes less than 10 meters near the small being. She receives something like an electric discharge at the time when it stares at her with its two luminous eyes. Her legs seems suddenly paralyzed. She has much trouble to go on pedaling to move away.

[Ref. hj1:] HENRI JULIEN:

The author indicates that there are cases with "Bibendum", the exact counterpart of the character which symbolized a tire brand, seen for example on October 18, 1954 in Fontenay (Oise) and in November 1954 between Avesne and Louvroie (Maubeuge). This humanoid has rolls around the arms. He is small (less than one meter), stocky, wears a helmet as broad as his shoulders. He was observed at a distance of four meters.

[Ref. fr1:] MICHEL FIGUET AND JEAN-LOUIS RUCHON:

The two authors indicate that on October 18, 1954 in Fontenay-Torcy Mr. and Mrs. Lherminier "or M. A. Vasseur and his wife" according to "Le Parisien Libéré", a brick-maker and his wife, ride bicycles on the D13, according to Jacques Vallée, or, according to Charles Garreau, Mrs. Lherminier rides a bicycle.

They or she saw a luminous cigar, from 3 to 4 meters long with at its from a white headlight which illuminates the area on 3 or 4 square kilometers and goes down towards them. It has a red trail at the back and seems illuminated on the circumference. It descends vertically like an elevator and lands in a meadow.

When they or she reaches the top of a hill, they or she faces an individual of human appearance, stocky, one meter tall, wearing a leather jacket with a shining drill plate, a helmet, and having luminous eyes shining of an orange gleam.

Mrs. Lherminier, when she passes less than 10 meters from the being, gets like an electric shock when the being stares at her, and her legs seem suddenly paralyzed. According to Charles Garreau she had trouble pedalling. One of the two witnesses [?] lost consciousness, according to Jacques Vallée.

In Samson-the-Pottery, a third [?] group of witnesses saw the apparatus flying away in the direction of the west, and the countryside was illuminated on an area of two kilometers.

The authors mention four other witnesses at another place, and footstep traces of the being.

"Glow-worm eyes."

A French couple, M. and Mme. Lherminier, told authorities a red spindlelike body swooped down out of the evening sky and set down at a place down the road from them. Cresting a hill, the man and his wife found themselves confronting a thick-set creature, about three feet tall and wearing a helmet. The creature, they said, had unforgettable glowing orange-colored eyes. Four other people in the area made independent observations of a UFO in the general area at the time. 147.

"Mass sighting."

A reddish blob swooped down on a couple near Fontenay-Forcy, landing behind some shrubbery that screened it from view. The man and woman rushed to the place where the object should be, and, to their great surprise, came face-to-face with a figure, three feet tall, wearing a helmet through which recorded. The mysterious aerial aerial object was reported in the area by four independent witnesses. Another group at Sanson-la-Poterie sighted a strange object flying away from the supposed landing site at great speed. 154.

[Ref. js1:] JEAN SIDER:

The author indicates that on October 18, 1954 to 20:45 between Fontenay and Héricourt and Saint-Samson-la-Poterie, Mr. and Mrs. André Vasseur are on bicycle on the D113, and see a luminous cigar which seemed to land behind a hedge.

When they reached the top of a gentle slope, that Jean Sider thinks probably hid the landing spot, they suddenly distinguished on the edge of the road a being, about 1 meter tall, stocky, but of human form.

It carried a very curious helmet which appeared to enter in the shoulders, and from its eyes, a beam of orange light came out, directed towards the witnesses.

Mrs. Vasseur yelled, lost consciousness and fell, her husband took her up, and the couple fled as good as they could. Arrived at their house, they lost appetite and sleep.

The Gendarmerie, and inspector Dejean of the Renseignements Generaux [Intelligence], came to the place the next day, and found at a few meters of the the place, only two round traces, a few centimeters deep, and nothing else.

The investigation indicated that Mr. Vasseur is a sober and perfectly balanced worker.

Jean Sider indicates that other named witnesses saw the cigar-shaped object the same evening at the same hour and in the same area.

He indicates that the source is the Oise-Matin, of Compiègne, for October 20, 1954 on page 10, and that Michel Figuet indicates different effects and different witnesses names.

The Belgian ufologist indicates that in 1954, on October 18, in France, in Fontenay Torcy at "20:40 the Lherminiers couple saw an object in the shape of a red cigar, dive towards them by leaving behind a red trail and land close to the road. Once arrived at the top of the hill they were face to face with a thick human silhouette, approximately 1 mr high. This creature wore a helmet and its eyes emitted an orange gleam.

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Oise in Fontenay Torcy on October 18, 1954 at 20:40 hours, "a couple rides by bicycle on D133. Little before the descent which precedes Héricourt-St-Samson, they see, a long luminous cigar from 3 to 4 meters, with at its front, a white headlight which lights the area on 3 to 4 square kilometers. At the back, a red trail. It seems illuminated on the circumference. It goes down towards them vertically like an elevator, and lands behind a hedge at a few hundreds of meters of the road."

"As they reach the ridge of a hill, the witnesses are face to face with a one meter tall individual, stocky, of human appearance.

She has much trouble to continue to pedal and fainted. The man makes her stand up and holding the two bicycles in the hand they flee. He looks back, the beam still follows them. The "small being" had not moved. Returned on their premises they could neither eat nor sleep. Two hours later the man still said he was 'broken up'."

"During the investigation, at a few meters of the indicated place, one found on the roadside two round and large prints of a few centimeters of diameter like footstep traces, but nothing very convincing."

Mr and Mrs Lherminier saw a cigar shaped red object dive towards them with a reddish trail and land on the road.

[Ref. jg1:] JULIEN GONZALEZ:

The author indicates that there was a close encounter of the third kind between Fontenay and Héricourt/Saint-Samson-the-Pottery, in the Oise, on October 18, 1954, at 08:45 p.m., witnessed by Mrs. and Mr. André Vasseur, 25 years old, workman.

They went back home by bicycle, approaching the descent ahead of Héricourt-Saint-Sanson when their attention was drawn by a red gleam in the shape of a cigar, motionless in the sky at an important altitude.

The gleam suddenly dove towards the ground at a vertiginous speed while leaving behind it a red trail.

Arrived at the top of the hill, Mrs. Vasseur uttered a shout of fear: on the edge of the road, at a few centimetres of her handlebar, a strange being stared at her with an impressive glance. The being was of human form but squat, one meter tall approximately. It was capped with a helmet inserted on the shoulders. From its eyes a ray of light of orange color came out, directed towards the witnesses.

Terrified, Mrs. Vasseur lost consciousness. Her husband picked her upand they are fled as good as they could.

Back home, the couple could not eat and not sleep. Two hours later, Mr. Vasseur was still shaken. The next day, the gendarmes of Formerie, inspector Dejean of the General Intelligence and the rural policeman of Saint-Sanson went to the site, and within a few meters of the indicated place, they found on the side of the road two deep round prints a few centimetres in diameter.

The investigation made it possible to establish that other people, Misters Edmond Nantier, Dael and Lair, had observed a cigaroid object the same evening, at the same hour, and in the same sector.

Julien Gonzalez points out that many ufologists (C. Garreau, J. Vallée, M. Figuet) quoted this case with an erroneous name for the witnesses, Mrs. and Mr. Lherminier. Jean Sider found the article of Oise Matin for October 20, 1954, at the time of his research to the National Library was the first to rectify the error in his book "LE dossier 1954 et l'imposture rationaliste" published in 1997.
