The 1954 French flap in the Press:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Le Journal du Pas-de-Calais et de la Somme, France, page 4, on October 27, 1954.


in the region
of Hesdin - St-Pol

It was rumored in Hesdin that a local trader had seen a saucer and Martians. Here are the facts as reported to us:

Having finished his delivery round, the merchant was driving in a van between Erquières and Wail, around 10 p.m., in the company of two passengers, when suddenly a blinding glare dazzled him. At the same time its brand new engine gave signs of failure in the same time as his headlights did.

The driver and one of the passengers were seriously shocked and are still wondering what could have happened to them, as there were no thunderstorms in the area that evening.

The same trader saw a few days from then one of these objects with different colors that are so much talked about and which he described to us very precisely. This was happening in Linzeux and several witnesses attest to this.

In Bouin, on the Hesdin-Montreuil road, around 8:15 p.m., residents saw on two consecutive days, an abnormally bright sphere above the forest.

Same observation and in the same place, by a resident of Huby-Saint-Leu and by another well-known person.

All these good people, renowned for their common sense and seriousness, must be believed without restriction. On the other hand, none of them saw a saucer land, and even less beings moving around it.

Their opinion is that this is a new secret craft.
