Reports:

[Ref. ld1:] "LUMIERES DANS LA NUIT" MAGAZINE:

On October 3, 1954, at about two in the morning, in the area of La Guerche, in the département of the Vienne, a greenish phenomenon with the shape of a cup has been observed. The indicated source is the newspaper "Le Berry Républicain" for Tuesday, October 5, 1954:

"Sunday towards 2:00 in the morning, the young Marcel Debrade who arrived from Bourges by the train returned to his parents living in the domain of the "Geai": he also noted on the side of "la Claurie" a flying saucer, but this time the machine resembled a coffee cup and was of a greenish color."

"The young man specified that the road and meadows were illuminated and as soon as it appeared, all sunk into darkness (after the disappearance of the phenomenon)."

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

The two authors indicate that "like all the other investigators", they "fell into the trap" with regard to the case from La Guerche-sur-l'Aubois in the Cher on October 3, 1954, of which they give this text according to the newspaper "Le Berry Républicain" for October 5, 1954:

"The young Marcel Debrade who arrived from Bourges by the train returned to his parents living in the domain of the "Geai": he also noted on the hill of "la Claurie" a flying saucer, but this time the machine resembled a coffee cup and was of a greenish color."

"The young man specifies that the road and the meadows were illuminated and when it disappeared all fell into the darkness."

They say that they found Mr. Debrade in the Paris area where he lives today and which that he was very surprised of their questions, as the case was a big joke and that at the villages coffee-shop they had even said that in addition to the saucer and the cup, some had observed the croissant ["croissant" translates into "crescent", it is a French muffin you eat at breakfast with a cup of coffee].

[Ref. ti1] "TOURAINE INSOLITE" WEBSITE:
