End September 1954, Lourches, Nord:

Reference number for this case: End-Sep-54-Lourches. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

In 1974, ufologist Jean-Marie Birgorne collected the testimony of the case of Prouvy dating from late September 1954. The witness, Mr. Roger Leroy, told him that a few days later, the local press had published the story an observation quite similar to his, made very early the same morning, in Lourches, about ten kilometers from Prouvy.

Unfortunately, neither Jean-Marie Bigorne nor I could find this press article, or any other information on this alleged case.

Reports:

[Ref. jbe1:] JEAN-MARIE BIGORNE:

The ufologist heard the testimony at the end of the 1974 of an observation having taken place some fifteen days after the Quarouble case, therefore approximately at the end of September, in Prouvy in the department of Nord, of a large oval white dazzling craft which almost landed at 50 meters of Mr. Roger Leroy.

The later told Mr. Bigorne that he did not report it to the Press, but he remembers that a few days later, the local press published the report of a rather similar observation, made very early the same morning, in Lourches, within ten kilometers of Prouvy.

Mr. Bigorne indicates that he did not find the article.

[Ref. jdt1:] JEAN-PIERRE D'HONDT - GERU:

Writing on the case in Prouvy at the end of October 1954, Jean-Pierre d'Hondt does not omit to report that the witness of this observation had said that a few days later, the local press published the story of a similar observation, made very early the same morning, in Lourches (about ten kilometers from Prouvy), and that the article could not be found.

Explanations:

In 2019, I once again searched for "Lourches" in my growing documentation, but still have not found anything on this sighting.

Thus: insufficient information.
