October 21, 1954, Sainte-Marie-Kerque, Pas-de-Calais:

Reference for this case: 21-Oct-54-Sainte-Marie-Kerque.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


The regional newspaper Nord Littoral for October 23, 1954, reported on page 5 that Mr. Merlier, resident of Calais, salesman of "La Ruche", at the corner of the streets of Onze-Novembre and A. Briand, was in Sainte-Marie-Kerque, "the day before yesterday evening", therefore on October 21, 1954, when he saw above the town an "unidentified luminous disc."

The newspaper sais his statements corroborated those of another witness, and that he had voiced previous skepticism about "the alleged craft", saying he is now "certain because I'm grown up enough not to have been hallucinated!"




Flying saucers
in the Calaisis

A Calaisian, shopping at "La Ruche", at the corner of rue du Onze-Novembre and rue A. Briand, located at Ste-Marie-Kerque, the day before yesterday evening, saw an unidentified luminous disc above the town. Mr. Merlier, whose statements co-substantiate those of another witness is absolutely formal:

- Previously I did not believe in these alleged craft at all. Now I'm sure because I'm grown up enough not to have been hallucinated!"

A Guines worker at Ets Dion and Lavoine, getting off the train from Guines the day before yesterday evening, around the same hour, in company another of his fellow citizens, also saw a luminous disc.

We will also see in the Nordausques section, that a craft was also seen.



Probably the meteor of 07:15 p.m., insufficient information.
