UFOs in the daily Press:

French saucers and Martians of 1954:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Bresle et Vimeu Libre, of Gamaches, Somme, France, page 2, on October 24, 1954.



Londinières' Saucer

"Since weeks that they made their appearance in all the skies of France, the flying saucers seemed to express an incomprehensible scorn for the country of Bray. This gap is finally filled: the weekend, indeed, was marked by a sudden surge of nonidentifiable machines.

"Friday evening, Mr. Henri Robert, doctor-veterinary in Londinières, was returning at his place when he saw at a low altitude in the sky four discs one on the other.

After having noted an astonishing weakness of his car's engine suddenly turned off, he resumed his travel; a few kilometers further, he saw on the road a strange being which, at his approach - and after once again the car had been immobilized - threw himself in an object in the shape of cigar and disappeared at a vertiginous speed.

"Saturday evening, Mr. Michel Gosselin, tradesman in Neufchâtel, and chairman of the Football-Club, went away to Aumale to fetch the goal of his club coming in permission. He was accompanied by his cousin, Mr. Jean Leullier. Suddenly - it was 9:25 p.m. very exactly - in the sky which the moon lit intensely, he saw a dark disc trailing behind itself a long orange gleam at an incredible pace".

Mr. Henri Robert remained amazed at his unexpected vision. He alerted the gendarmerie. Other testimonys were collected by the way, in particular, that of a gendarme himself, Mr. Pelfresne.
