Reference number for this case: 9-Oct-54-Vieux-Mesnil. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

In an article about the "flying saucers", the local newspaper La Frontière, of Maubeuge, reported on October 15, 1954, that a saucer had been seen above the Bois de Boussières by two people who, "Saturday" - therefore October 9, 1954 - returned to their homes in Vieux-Mesnil.

The gazettes have, this week again, brought us their short column concerning the flying saucers. Our fellow Radar with a title big like that, announcing that they are offering a million to anyone who brings them the photo of a "real" flying saucer, publishes drawings of truly sensational reconstituted Martians.

Everyone has their own opinion on this and Sunday, the great radio pundit, Jean Nonain [Nohain], in his program "Flying Saucer" interviewed a high personality of the aerial world.

According to this gentleman - who does not believe in Martians - it would be a "craft", a new weapon more precisely, currently at the testing stage and put into service by a "power". He believes that the saucer is made up of two cabins, one of which is fixed, and is powered by a "nuclear" mechanism.

???... Let's wait for the rest.

This week was marked with us by the vision of a saucer above the Bois de Boussières by two people who, on Saturday, returned to their home in Vieux-Mesnil.

You see that with us too, there is no longer a week without seeing anything abnormal.

***

But the last word was given by a metalworker from Lisse.

They were several like that speaking about this enthralling affair and they evoked the famous Brittany baker assistant wo, the first, saw a Martian at his sides... And who reported seeing a bearded and hairy being, with corbel's eyes...

The conversation then comes on the possibility of another world much more advanced than us in terms of technique.

- Not so, said the chap, they ain't no more advanced than us, they don't know about the electric shaver!
