Reports:

[Ref. jd1:] JEAN-PIERRE D'HONDT:

This ufologist indicates that between October 22 and October 25, 1954, between Erquières and Wail, the Pas-de-Calais, "At approximately 22 00, a tradesman of Hesdin who returned from a delivery round by car, accompanied by two passengers, was suddenly dazzled by a violent gleam. At the same time, the engine of his vehicle (although totally new) gave signs of failure, just like the headlights. The driver and one of the passengers were seriously contused and they were to wonder a long time what had happened to them, for no storm had burst that day."

"A few days earlier, in Linzeux, this same tradesman had seen an object with changing colors, of which he provides a description corroborated by the testimony of several other people."

The author comments: "(The first case - i.e. the second chronologically to be strictly accurate does not constitute a case of landing, but the effects on the engine and the headlights let suppose an immediate proximity of the source of these disturbances.)"

The sources are noted as "'Le Journal du Pas-de-Calais et de la Somme' of Boulogne, for 10.27.54. p.1 – LDLN 324 for December 1993, page 34."
