October 8, 1954, Soissons, Aisne:

Reference number for this case: 8-Oct-54-Soissons. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

In a catalog published in the United Kingdom in 1979, the French ufologist Alain Gamard indicated that according to the newspaper L'Union for October 13, 1954, there had been a close encounter of the third kind on October 11, 1954, at an unspecified hour, in Soissons, with two witnesses.

The ufologist Michel Figuet seemed to have found another source, since in 1985, in his Francat catalog, he listed a close encounter of the third kind in Soissons on October 8, 1954 at 11:45 a.m., according to the press.

Then, in 1997, Jean Sider indicated that according to the newspaper L'Union, of Reims, on page 2, on October 13, 1954, at the beginning of October 1954 at an unspecified hour, near Soissons in the Aisne, a father and his son saw a saucer posed in a field, and a small man climbing on board with a ladder.

In the 2000s, the British "skeptical" ufologist Peter Rogerson added to this a version that he also said to come from L'Union of Reims for October 13, 1954, saying that on October 8, 1954, at 11:45 a.m. in Soissons, four motorists passing by the Compiègne Avenue saw a walking humanoid.

[Ref. lcn1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Aisne in Soissons in October 1954 at an unknown hour, "At the beginning of the month, a father and his son observed an object in the shape of a saucer in a field in which a small man rose using a scale. The two witnesses preferred to return on their premises."

The source is said to be "Lumières dans la Nuit".

[Ref. uda1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that in October 1954 in Soissons, France, "Little man climbs down ladder from saucer in field." And: "Close encounter with an unidentified craft and its occupants. One disc was observed by two male witnesses on a farm for over one minute. One dwarf was seen."

The sources are noted as Lumieres dans la Nuit; Hatch, Larry, *U* computer database, Author, Redwood City, 2002.

The website indicates that in October 1954 in Soissons, France, "Father and son see landed metallic saucer shaped object, and then sees a little man climb the ladder into object. Ladder retracts and the object shoots up and high speed."

The source is a broken link.

Alternative version apparently going back to L'Union has a father and son saw a disc shaped object in a field and little man climbing into it via ladder (Gross 1954. URECAT)

Note: The source reference "URECAT" is my file as it appears in my CE3 catalogue URECAT; the file content is the same as this page of my France 1954 catalogue.

Explanations:

This is all so confused that I am not even sure that this is one or two cases.

Whatever may be, the witnesses are anonymous, there is not enough information, no checking, obviously no investigation; so although there is no prosaic explanation for now, the credibility of the whole is not striking.
