Reports:

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

The two authors indicate that on October 24, 1954 at 10:30 a.m. in Lalizolle in the department of Allier, Mr. Laforêt found himself face to face with an object in the shape of a saucer posed on the ground. It had a 3 meters length on 1m70 height.

He fled, and came back later on the premises with other people, and all noted that the grass had been crushed on a circle from two to three meters in diameter. The dogs refused to approach the trace.

They indicate that their source isthe ufologist Jean Giraud of the LDLN 03100 Group who made the investigation, and Info-OVNI, Catalogue Allier.

[Ref. js1:] JEAN SIDER:

Jean Sider first gives information on this case coming from the newspaper Center-Matin for October 28, 1954, which indicates this:

On October 24, 1954, at 10:30 A.M., in Lalizolle, in the department of the Allier, Mr. Laforêt was hunting in the wood of Grandschamps, and he saw a flying saucer posed on the ground in the center of a clearing.

The saucer was approximately three meters wide, for a little less than three meters high.

Mr. Laforêt went back to alert neighbors, but when he returned with them, the flying saucer was not there anymore.

Jean Sider adds that in an investigation report published in "Info-OVNI", Allier catalogue, Jean Giraud questioned the witness and thus learned that the grass had been crushed on a diameter of three meters on the location, and dogs refused to approach the place. Sider specifies that this information was not in the newspaper Centre-Matin's article. Jean Giraud had concluded that Mr. Laforêt, coffee shop owner in Lalizolle, was of good faith.

[Ref. go1:] GODELIEVE VAN OVERMEIRE:

The Belgian ufologist indicates in her catalogue that in France, in 1954, on October 24, in Lalizolle, "Towards 10:30 Mr. Laforêt is face to face, in a clearing of the "Bois des Grands Champs" with a 3 m long saucer, 1m70 high, posed on the ground. He flees. Later he returns on the spot with other people and all note that the grass is crushed in a circle from 2 to 3 m in diameter. The dogs refuse to approach the trace."
