November 8, 1954, La Tessoualle, Deux-Sèvres:

Reference number for this case: 8-nov-54-LaTessoualle. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

At least four newspapers reported this case at the time. One of them, Le Republicain, from Sablé in the Sarthe, reported the following on November 24, 1954.

André Chaillou, a blacksmith in the town of La Tessoualle and living in Loublande in the Deux-Sèvres department, a "man experienced in the dangers and with a perfectly balanced judgment", a veteran of WW2 and the Indochina war, came every morning to work at the workshop where he met his father and his brother. He stopped work around 7 p.m.. For the daily return trip, he used a moped.

He is quoted as reporting what happened to him on Monday, November 8, 1954:

"It might have been 7:30 p.m. Having a meeting at night with friends and finding myself a little late, I was driving at a good pace."

"The sky was clear and the moon was almost full."

"About 1 kilometer from the village of Loublande, near the road to Puy-Saint-Bonnet, I noticed in front of me a small blue light."

"The headlight of the moped is powerful and for a second, I thought it was an animal crossing the road and whose eyes shone in the beam of my headlight."

"I did not get lost in guessing, because in less time than it takes to say, my moped stopped and I was thrown forward on the handlebar, having great trouble to avoid a dangerous fall."

"My first thought was that it was a failure, when I looked up about fifty meters in front of me and at a height of about 1 meter 50, the blue dot had the diameter of a headlight, and projected in my direction a blinding glow comparable to that of an electric arc."

"I found myself unable to make a move or say a word, my hands stuck on the handlebars felt a painful tingling, despite the gloves that protected me."

"Wether it lasted a minute or a second, I cannot say."

"The light went out suddenly and I found the use of movement and speech, immediately."

He added: "I was sometimes as long as the front in Indochina, in dangerous situations and I did not shake, but this time, I admit it without shame, I was scared!"

The experience did not end there.

Having put his moped to start without any difficulty, he continued on his way and quickly took a good pace. He was eager to arrive home.

He had traveled about 200 meters when, in a field on the right, perhaps at 150 meters from the edge of the road, he saw a big gleam.

He thought it was some campfire, but immediately, he associated the glow with what had just happened.

The time to stop his moped, to park it on the side of the road, the witness went towards it through the fields.

He distinguished at ground level an elongated and luminescent shape that might have been 5 to 6 meters long.

A hedge interposed between him and the shape. He still had a hundred meters to walk, when at a "dizzying" speed and with a slight hissing sound, the oblong shape rose vertically, then, on a horizontal trajectory, disappeared in about fifteen seconds.

To avoid the incredulous comments and the inevitable "scoffing", André Chaillou had preserved from the beginning an understandable discretion. But the insights he could make seemed so indisputable that he ended up telling some friends about it, so the news got out of hand and it reached the press.

Succinct summaries appeared in many ufological texts in the following decades. Jimmy Guieu had mistyped "Loublande" into "Louplande", a village in another department; which issue was solved by ufologist Michel Figuet in 1976. Sometimes the moped had become a "car".

Maine-et-Loire

A BLACKSMITH
OF La TESSOUALLE
GOING BACK TO LOUBLANDE
BY MOPED IS
A VICTIM OF A MYSTERIOUS
"BLUE RAY"

A new element is added to the already extensive record of flying saucers and other more or less interstellar gear. The evidence gathered is all the more value as it has many specific points and it comes from a man accustomed to danger and of perfectly balanced judgment.

André Chaillou is blacksmith in the village of La Tessoualle and lives in Loublande (Deux-Sèvres). He is a Veteran of 1939-1945 and Indochina. Every morning he comes to work at his workshop where he joins his father and his brother. He ceases to work at 7 p.m.. Each day for the return trip, he uses a moped.

Let's add that the events took place on Monday, November 8. It is to avoid the incredulous comments and the inevitable "scoffing" that Mr. Chaillou kept an understandable discretion so far.

The findings he made seemed to him so compelling that he ended up sharing it with some friends. The news spread and it came to us.

Paralyzing ray

André Chaillou gave the following account:

"It might have been 7:30 p.m.. Having a meeting in the evening with friends and finding myself a little late, I was riding at a good pace.

"The sky was clear and the moon almost full.

"At about 1 kilometer from the town of Loublande, near the road to Puy-Saint-Bonnet, I noticed a little blue light ahead of me.

"The headlight of the moped is powerful and for a second I thought it was an animal crossing the road with the eyes glistening in the beam of my light.

"I did not lose time in assumptions, because in less time than it takes to say it, my machine stopped dead and I was thrown forward on the handlebars, having had great difficulty to avoid a dangerous fall.

"My first thought was it was a failure. When I looked up, about fifty meters ahead of me and at a height of 1 m 50 from the ground approximately, the blue dot had taken the diameter of a car's headlight and threw in my direction a blinding light comparable to that of an electric arc.

"I then found it impossible to make a move or utter a word. My hands glued on the handlebars, felt a painful tingling, despite the gloves that protected me.

"Did this last one minute or one second? I cannot tell.

"The light went out and suddenly I found the use of movement and speech. At the same moment."

Mr. Chaillou added "I was sometimes on the frontline in Indochina, in dangerous situations and I did not shake, but this time, I say without shame, I was scared!"

At 200 meters the adventure continues

The adventure of the young blacksmith does not end there.

Having started his moped on the road without the slightest difficulty, he continued his journey and quickly took a good pace. As one can imagine, he was anxious to get home.

It is about 200 meters away in a field on the right, 150 meters maybe from the edge of the road, that he saw a big glow.

A firebrand, he thinks, but immediately, he links it to the light that just happened.

Our man is not a coward. The time to stop the moped, to park on the side of the road, and he went through the fields.

An elongated shape and glow stood close to the ground; which may have measures 5-6 meters long.

A hedge stands between him and the apparatus, he still has a hundred meters to go, when at breakneck speed and with a slight wheezing sound, the oblong object rises vertically, then along a horizontal path, to disappear in about fifteen seconds.

Today, Mr. Chaillou has questions that one day perhaps will find answers. The evidence he provides, in complete good faith, only makes the issue more acute. Time elapsed only gives it more value. We can only regret together with our friendly interlocutor that we cannot give these facts a... touchable conclusion.

[Ref. jgu1:] JIMMY GUIEU:

Science fiction writer and French ufologist pioneer Jimmy Guieu indicates that on November 8, 1954, at the fall of night, Mr. André Chaillou, blacksmith, resident in Louplande [sic] in the Deux-Sèvres, was returning to his home by motorcycle, when his attention was drawn by a blue disc evolving in the sky.

The headlight of its motorcycle suddenly died out, and the engine was blocked.

The luminous disc approached the witness who was then wrapped in a blue light as violent as that of an electric arc.

During several minutes, he was unable to move the arms, neither the legs, nor to articulate a word, and remained paralyzed, a foot on the ground, on his motorcycle. He moreover felt a tickling in the hands, in spite of the gloves which protected them.

The blue ray disappeared and Mr. Chaillou spontaneously recovered his abilities. His motorcycle functioned again normally and he resumed his trip.

But 200 meters further, he saw a new gleam. He approached but darkness fell. He heard a gentle whistling sound and he saw a dark mass which rose vertically to disappear horizontally in the direction of the North. The mass was illuminated gradually, presenting a cone of 5 to 6 meters length approximately.

[Ref. mcs1:] MICHEL CARROUGES:

Michel Carrouges indicates that on November 23, in the department of Deux-Sèvres, Mr. Chaillou, on motorcycle, was overflown by a blue disk which went towards him and bathed him in a blue light "as violent as a welding torch light." The engine stalled. the headlight died out. The witness felt tickling in the hands. He was paralyzed during several minutes in the arms and the legs and could not speak.

Carrouges notes this case in his listing of cases with physical effects, and newspaper France-Soir of November 24, 1954, as the source.

Nov. 08, 1954, dusk, La Tessoualle (France).

Andre Chaillou felt prickling in his hands, "in spite of his gloves," when a blue disk came close to his motorcycle and his electrical system failed. He was unable to move or articulate a word for several minutes. As soon as the blue light was turned off, he started again and went near the light when it reappeared 200 m away. He saw the object, a cone 5.5 m in size, rise vertically with a soft whistling, then fly horizonally to the north. (Combat, 23 nov, Paris-Presse, 24 nov 1954) (98).

[Ref. jve2:] JACQUES VALLEE:

Jacques Vallée indicates that on November 8, 1954 in the twilight in Tessoualle close to Cholet, a man returned at his place and saw a blue disc in the sky, at the moment when his engine stopped and his headlights died out.

This disc approached and the man was surrounded by an intense blue light and remained unable to move during several minutes, unable to articulate a word and feeling swarming in the hands in spite of his gloves.

As soon as the blue light turned off, he could move and start the engine, but the light reappeared 200 meters further and he decided to approach. But the UFO darkened and flew away with a soft whistling sound, vertically, then horizontally towards the north.

The UFO is described as a cone of approximately 5 to 6 meters in height.

The author does not indicate sources.

[Ref. gal1:] CHARLES GARREAU AND RAYMOND LAVIER:

The two authors indicate that in Louplande [sic] in the Sarthe, on November 8, 1954, André Chaillou, the blacksmith of Louplande [sic], returned home by motorcycle whereas the night had fallen.

His attention was suddenly drawn by a blue disc which evolved in the sky. Almost at the same moment, the headlight of its motorcycle died out and the engine stalled. The disc approached.

The two authors give this account:

"I was wrapped of a bluish light, as violent as that of an electric arc. During several minutes, I remained frozen on my motorcycle, a foot on the ground, not being able to move neither arm neither legs, nor to articulate a word. In spite of my gloves, I felt tickling on my hands. The blue ray died out. I found all my faculties instantaneously. My motorcycle functioned normally again. I resumed my trip. But at the end of 200 meters hardly, I saw a new gleam. I however continued to advance. The darkness was down again. I heard a gentle whistling sound, at the same time as I saw a dark mass sinks rise vertically and disappear then horizontally in the direction of the North. This mass illuminated gradually, taking the appearance of a cone of 5 to 6 meters approximately..."

The two authors provide as reference the book "Black-out sur les soucoupes volantes", by Jimmy Guieu.

[Ref. mft2:] MICHEL FIGUET:

- 3 - U.F.O. AND GEOGRAPHY.

In a large number of cases of U.F.O. on the ground during the year 1954 which was, remember, the largest wave of observations of our time; the hours, dates and places are often poorly specified.

Let us mention, among many others, the case of LOUPLANDE - LA-TESSOUALLE; being on November 8, 1954, at dusk.

Here are the facts:

Mr. André CHAILLON, LOUPLANDE's blacksmith, returns home by moped, coming back from La TESSOUALLE. His attention is suddenly drawn to a blue disc moving in the sky.

And, almost at the same moment, the headlight of his moped turns off and the engine stalls.

The luminous disk approaches the witness, which is then enveloped in a blue light as violent as that of an electric arc.

For several minutes, he cannot move arms, legs, nor articulate a word, remaining frozen, one foot on the ground, the other on his moped. He feels, moreover, a tingling in his hands, despite the gloves that protect him.

The blue ray disappears and Mr. A. CHAILLON spontaneously regains possession of his faculties. His machine is working again, he resumes his travel.

200 meters further, he sees a new light, he approaches, and darkness comes again. The witness then hears a slight whistling sound and sees a dark mass that gradually lights up, this conical mass of 5 to 6 meters long, rises vertically to disappear to the north.

But this is not the subject of this article: Jimmy GUIEU in BLACK-OUT SUR LES SOUCOUPES VOLANTES, page 234, gives for department of LOUPLANDE, the DEUX-SEVRES, about the department, J. GUIEU is correct, as we shall see.

Jacques VALLEE, in A CENTURY OF LANDING quotes: LA TESSOUALLE, FRANCE; there, no problem of department. Charles GARREAU, in his latest book: FACE AUX EXTRA-TERRESTRES, locates LOUPLANDE in the department of SARTHE (p.89.).

Jean GIRAUD in an article on paralysis (OURANOS magazine) noted: "it was extremely difficult for us to locate the place on the map, because LOUPLANDE is in the SARTHE, TESSOUALLE in the MAINE-ET-LOIRE, and Jimmy GUIEU, who reports the event, puts it in the DEUX-SEVRES".

But the reality is different ...

This brave blacksmith did not cross the 150 to 200 km that separate LA TESSOUALLE in the south-west of the MAINE-ET-LOIRE, to the misspelled village which is south-west of the MANS, in the SARTHE; but simply the 5 km separating LA TESSOUALLE (reference index atlas Oberthur) 6 km south of CHOLET (Maine et Loire) from his small village of LOUBLANDE, community of MAULEON, north-west of the DEUX-SEVRES.

These two villages are at the border of the department.

LA TESSOUALLE (FRANCE) Andre Chaillou felt pricklings in his hands "despite his gloves", when a blue disc came close to his motorcycle and his electrical system failed. He was unable to move or utter a word for several minutes. As soon as the blue light turned off he started again, and went near the light when it reappered [sic] 200m away. The object, a cone 5.5m in size, rose vertically with a soft whistling, then flew horizontaly [sic] northwards. (M333: Combat, 23 Nov 54; Paris-Presse, 24 Nov 54)

[Ref. skt1:] "SKYWATCH" MAGAZINE:

1 . 8/11//54 LA TESSOUALLE, NEAR CHOLET, FRANCE.

A driver found that his vehicle engine and lights failed as a flying blue disclike object approached. The driver was surrounded by an intense blue light and found himself paralysed for several minutes, with a prickling feeling in his hands in spite of gloves. The light went out and the driver was then able to move and start his engine. The light reappeared, now described as cone-shaped and about five metres in diameter. It rose vertically and flew away with a soft whistling sound.

[Ref. fru1:] MICHEL FIGUET AND JEAN-LOUIS RUCHON:

The two authors note that on November 8, 1954 in the twilight between Tessoualle, community of Cholet, and Loublande, community of Mauléon, André Chaillou, blacksmith of Loublande (department of the Deux-Sèvres) returned from Tessoualle (department of the Maine-et-Loire) by motor cycle on the road D258 then D358. Suddenly, the headlight of the motorcycle died out and the engine stopped.

He then saw a blue luminous disc then that he had already seen evolving in the sky, resembling a bluish light as violent as an electric arc. The disc evolved at low altitude.

During several minutes, he remained with a foot on the ground on his motorcycle while being unable to move neither arm neither legs, nor to articulate a word. In spite of his gloves, he felt tickling in his hands.

When the light disappeared, he recovered his move, his motorcycle functioned again, and he could go.

200 meters farther, he heard a gentle whistling sound and saw a dark mass which rose vertically; it gradually illuminated, presenting a cone from 5 to 6 meters of length approximately.

The authors note that Jimmy Guieu and C. Garreau speak of Loublande; Quincy speaks of Louplande at 5 km in straight line, at the north-north-east of the Suze-sur-Sarthe (the Sarthe), and that actually, the witness was crossing the 5 km that separate the village of Tessoualle, in the south of the Maine-et-Loire, from the village of Loublande, in the north of the Deux-Sèvres.

They note as effect on the witness: paralysis and the feeling of tickling in the hands. They point out that the feeling of tickling in the hands of motorcycle riders are often due to a bad blood circulation caused by the numbness of the hands and the vibrations of the handlebar.

They note as effect on vehicle the failure of the engine of the motorcycle.

They indicate that their sources are the Vallée catalogue, case 333, the book "Black-out sur les S. V" by Jimmy Guieu, page 234 and "Face aux E.T." by C Garreau and R. Lavier, page 89, the bulletin "U.F.O. Info" of the A.A.M.T., N.15, "OVNI et géographie" by Mr. Figuet., as well as Guy Quincy, and the newspapers Combat and Paris-Presse for November 24, 1954.

Besides trouble with the bike, Chaillou himself felt something affect him, a prickling feeling accompanied by an inability to move or speak. The blue light went off and the Frenchman regained his strength. The UFO then came back into view, about 200 yards away, rising straight up then shooting away horizontally on a northern course.

LA TESSOUALLE (MAINE ET LOIRE : FRANCE)

Blacksmith Andre Chaillou was riding his moped home when he saw a blue disc in the sky as his moped light and engine failed. He became enveloped in a blue light as intense as an electric arc and found himself paralysed and a tingling on his hands despite his gloves. The light then passed and he was able to resume his journey, but 200m further along the light reappeared then went again. He then heard a low whistle and saw a dark mass growing brighter as it went away to the north. He then saw it was a conical object 5-6m in diameter

Note: "Gross 1954" is of course this page of mine, but it is not reflected correctly. For example, I did not cite 2 sources but 19 sources! And as usual, Peter Rogerson did not provide a link to my page.

Explanations:

André Chaillou told the Press that the sighting started at about 1 kilometer from the village of Loublande, near the road to Puy-Saint-Bonnet, as he came from La Tessoualle, and continued after he drove on for 200 meters. This stretch is the red line on the map below (46° 59' 11" N 0° 50' 40" W):

This place is in the Deux-Sèvres department, at no more than 50 meters from the limit with the Maine-et-Loire department. In fact, when the witness walked in the field on his right towards the UFO, he stopped on the boundary of the two departments.

The witness stated that he also saw the Moon, so it was not the Moon, which was 110°, elevation 33°, on his left slightly ahead of him in the first sighting and in his back when he walked into the field.

Below: by day, in 2018, the hedge mentioned by the witness, who walked to it from the road (the old road still here on the image.).

I think it is totally possible that this sighting was that of an extraterrestrial craft.
