The 1954 French flap in the Press:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Nord-Matin, Maubeuge issue, Nord, France, page 4, on October 19, 1954.


A saucer in the sky
of Sous-le-Bois

After Mr. Romain, the sympathetic violinist from Maubeuge, saw a few weeks ago already, two brilliant discs moving at high speed, it happens that Mr. Marcel Hanske, trumpet player and professor at the Ecole Municipale de Louvroil, saw with his wife and her young son, Saturday around 9:20 p.m., as he went to bed, a "ball of fire" crossing the sky at breakneck speed.

Mr. Marcel Hanske, who is well known throughout the region, lives on rue des Alliés, and Sunday with real sincerity, did not fail to report the matter to his friends at the Harmonie de Louvroil. Here he explains what he had seen, to Mr. Alfed Rigaut, the deputy chief of the Louvroil harmony.
