The 1954 French flap in the Press:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper La Voix du Nord, issue of the Artois and the Somme, France, page 6, on October 9, 1954.



No respite for the saucer researchers who, every evening and even every night, observe mysterious orange appearances in the Picardy sky. Among the people who claim to have seen mysterious craft in the sky we will quote Mr. and Mrs. Legendre, 97, rue Edmond-Rostand, in Amiens; then other people of Boves; Mr. Gilbert Urbain, farmer in Bernaville, is also on the list, as well as Miss Christiane Beaussaux, farm maid.

Apparitions also in the region of Péronne and more especially in Longueval, Roisel, Doing-Flamicourt, Cartigny, Etricourt-Manancourt and Hangest-sur-Somme.

At the Amiens station, during the night, MM. Albert Mignot, deputy head of handling; Robert Pruvost, main team man; Adrien Wiart, chief maneuver; Michel Groue, yard maneuver, and Raymond Dubois, loco-tractor driver, saw a mysterious craft fly over the city from west to east.
