The 1950's, Saint-Saturnin-lès-Avignon, Vaucluse:

Reference number for this case: 50s-Saint-Saturnin-lès-Avignon. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

The sensationalist magazine Nostra stated that in the 1950s, in Saint-Saturnin-lès-Avignon, "at the beginning of the great waves of observation of flying saucers, perhaps...", a Mr. Henri E. was working in one of his lands, a field or a vineyard, when he saw an unknown object land nearby on his own land.

"From reliable source", Nostra knows that Mr. E. "would have met" "inhabitants of a flying saucer"... "Thus, Henri E. is confronted with a contact with other beings of a race of space." Be that as it may, he told "later" around him that he had seen a flying saucer, he was mocked and no longer spoke about it.

But "some time later", he asked for help to "recover and clean a hole in his field that would have been caused by this landing of a flying saucer... And one spoke again of the case, or " one" thought about it again.

Then he - again - no longer spoke about it, he fell ill and "was assisted in these last moments by the doctor of a neighboring village who was treating him, and he died, but before he disappeared, he had time to tell his adventure to Doctor X., asking him beforehand never to reveal what he was going to hear, and the secret was kept. The doctor was bound by professional secrecy and the word given to a dying person, who were there and are always there to prevent anyone from knowing more, but that did not prevent Doctor X from indulging in confidences to a patient, mother of our informant, knowing that his son was interested in these stories. He had a sister, Marie, who died at the age of 76, in June 1975. She stood against her brother's decision to reveal his adventure to the doctor, when he had never wanted to share it with his entourage and his family, and his sister, his closest relative."

The magazine assures that the informant's mother-in-law is from Saint-Saturnin, and remembers hearing about the affair in her youth, and confirmed the story of her son-in-law.

Reports:

[Ref. no1] "NOSTRA" MAGAZINE:

In the Fifties, in Saint Saturnin lès Avignon, maybe at the beginning of the large flap of observation of the flying saucers... Mr Henri E. worked in one of his grounds, a field or a vine, when he saw an unknown object land not far from there. In his own ground.

From a reliable source, we know that Mr E. "encountered" the inhabitants of a flying saucer... Thus, Henri E is confronted with a contact with other beings of a race from space. Whatever, he later told around that he saw a flying saucer. And, the reaction was that he was consequently regarded as a poor "moron" and all make fun of this man who decides not to speak anymore about the story and to keep it for himself.

But a few times after, he asks for assistance "to fill and clean a hole which this landing of a flying saucer had caused in his field "... And the case was talked about again. At least, one thought of it.

Time went by and Henri E did not speak any more of this strange adventure which had gotten only vexations to him. Then, he fell sick and was assisted in these last moments by the doctor of a nearby village which looked after him, and he died. But before passing, he had the time to tell his adventure to doctor X., while asking him before never to reveal what he was going to hear. And the secrecy was kept. The doctor was held by professional secrecy and the word given to someone dying, which were there to prevent whoever from knowing more. But that did not prevent doctor X from letting out confidences towards a patient, mother of our advisor, knowing that her son was interested in these stories. Henri E had a sister, Marie, who died at the age of 76, in June 1975. The latter protested against the decision of her brother to reveal his adventure to the doctor, whereas he had never wanted to share it to his entourage and his family, and his sister, her nearest relative.

The mother-in-law of our informer is originating from Saint Saturnin, and remembers to have intended to speak about the case in her youth. She confirms to us the account of her son-in-law.
