October 27, 1954, Tréglamus, Côtes-d'Armor:

Reference for this case: 27-oct-54-Tréglamus.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In their 1975 book "Face aux Extra-Terrestres", ufologists and journalists Charles Garreau and Raymond Lavier indicated that according to "a press clipping" of their "personal file", October 27, 1954, in Treglamus, in the Côte-d'Armor department, "several people saw a similar craft", similar to the one that they said landed in Plémet, 50 kilometers away.



From a newspaper clipping of their personal files, the two ufologists report that a landing occurred on October 27, 1954, in Plemet in the Côtes-du-Nord.

In conclusion for their description of that case, they add that in Treglamus, in the Côte-d'Armor also, at 50 km in the North-West of that landing, "several people saw a similar machine."


The two authors indicate that in Tréglamus, near Guinchamp, in the department of Côtes-d'Armor, on October 27 1954 at an unspecified time, numerous witnesses observed a brilliant disc.


The Belgian ufologist indicates that in 1954, on October 27, in France, in Plemet (Côtes du Nord) "André Treussard went to Morbihan, accompanied of a friend. Close to Chèze they were suddenly dazzled by a shining disc, to such extent that they had to stop. At 100 m approximately of their car they saw in a field a machine in the shape of a boat, 4 to 5 meters long. The two men did not dare to approach. The machine flew away almost at once. In Tréglamus (50 km with the N.O.) several people saw a similar machine."

The source is indicated as "GARREAU et LAVIER : "Face aux extra-terrestres" - DELARGE 1975 - J'ai Lu, p. 89".

[Ref. leo1:] "L'ECHO":

In an insert following an article about UFO's, headlined "1954: the big UFO wave", the magazine indicates that "If one believes the testimonys collected by the ufologists on their websites the year 1954 was rich of "appearances"."

The magazine cites a few regional case, such as:

"Tréglamus, October 27, 1954, unspecified time."

"Many witnesses observe a shining disc in the sky."

[Ref. lcn1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Côtes d'Armor in Treglamus on October 27, 1954 at an unknown hour "Many witnesses observe a brilliant disc."

The source is indicated as "Ovni, Premier dossier complet... par Figuet M./ Ruchon J.L. ** éd. Alain Lefeuvre 1979".

[Ref. uda1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 27 October 1954 in "Trefamus", France, "An object was sighted by multiple independent witnesses that had an appearance and aerobatic performance beyond the capability of known earthly aircraft. One object was observed by several witnesses."

The source is indicated as Vallee, Jacques, Computerized Catalog (N = 3073).

There is a big doubt about the date since if, as Garreau and Lavier suggest without really asserting it, it had taken place on the same date as the so-called Plémet case, then the date would be October 25, 1954, according to a search by Jean Sider.

For the rest, "similar craft" does not mean anything to me, I consider that the information is insufficient to ensure an explanation.

At the most I could suppose that if the two cases were really concomitant, it could give weight to the idea that both were the sighting of the same meteor.
