New testimonies
about the flying saucers

Sunday, around 9 p.m., Mr. Georges Galand, butcher in Rue (Somme), was returning from Berck by car, accompanied by his wife. He was in the territory of Quend, at a place called "Le Pont Ó Cailloux", when he saw in the sky, a mysterious craft in the shape of a cigar. Mr. Galand slowed down the speed of his car and continued to observe the cigar-saucer following National Road 40, moving at low altitude and at a reduced speed.

For 8 kms, the motorists continued to follow the craft, which then veered towards Saint-Quentin-en-Tourmont.

In the meantime, Mr. Galand had gotten out of the car twice to observe better, and he heard no noise.

Another testimony corroborates Mr. Galand's statements: it is that of Mr. Georges Savary, living in Rue who, a few moments later, around 9:15 p.m. would have seen the craft land in a grassland four hundred meters from his home, and immediately set off again in the direction of Crotoy.

As almost always, no trace was found at the landing spot; for Mr. Savary, the craft had the shape of a red disc.
