August - September 1954, Villers-Guislain, Nord:

Reference number for this case: Aug-Sep-54-Villers-Guislain. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.



Mr. Wambeke, investigator, reported in the magazine this retro-testimony that he collected:

In August or September 1954, more or less one year, towards 06:30 P.M., in Villers-Guislain, district of Cambrai in the department of Nord, the witness who was 12 years old was alone on the village's square. His attention was drawn by a noise of air displacement. He looked for a source of the airflow and saw an object of big size and of orange red color, followed by a trail of the same color, above the houses surrounding the place , and quickly crossing the sky to disappear from his sight behind the roofs.

The trajectory went from the north-west to the south-east and the apparent dimension was equivalent to 10 centimeters at arm's length. The shape was elliptic, the distance and the height was estimated as a hundred meters.

The witness who at the time of the reporting had become a police officer and wished to remain anonymous indicated that many people had seen the phenomenon and that there had been articles in the local newspapers.


This ufologist notes that in August or September 1954, at approximately 06:30 p.m. in Villers-Guislain in the North, according to LDLN 123, a person currently senior police officer and wishing to keep the anonymity, who was aged 12 then and was alone on the village square, had his attention drawn by a noise of air volume displacement.

By looking for the source of the noise the boy saw above the houses surrounding the square, an object of big size and orange red color followed by a trail of the same color, which passed quickly in the sky and disappeared from his sight behind the roofs, having wollowed a NW-SE trajectory.

The approximate dimension of the object was 10 centimeters at arm's length, its shape elliptic, its distance and its height estimated as a hundred meters.

There would have been at the times articles in the local newspapers and much of people would have seen the phenomenon.


Not looked for yet.
