Go Back Report # 1093


Handwritten letter dated July 15, 1983

Brentwood, Essex, Scotland   


       When I was aged 21 I used to read about U.F.O.’s and thought it was one big load of rubbish, and that people who claimed they saw big round objects with flashing blue, white, orange lights were taking a right load of rubbish, even when reading books on U.F.O.’s. I said its just some other way of people making easy money, and its only idiots who waste good money on buying rubbish.

       “Sir I can’t say this now”. I would not even call anyone a liar or an idiot if they told me they saw a U.F.O.

       My reason for this is that on the 18th July 1966 I was up early at 5:30 getting ready for work. My wife and I and baby lived in [a] small flat in a 3 story high block of flats in Marichal St., Aberdeen, Scot., we had one window in our sitting room which faced the beach. The window was the sash type, the top half was open, it was a clear morning, no cloud[s], the sky was clear. I was looking out [of the] window waiting foe milk van to arrive, when all of a sudden the sky just above the window (we lived on the top flat) got a bit cloudy. I looked up, and “my God”, I saw this grey round object about 15 feet round, the bottom as flat as a pancake. Their was no lights, no windows, no doors. It went past and headed towards the sea on a straight course. The gray object was turning clockwise at a slow speed, there was no sound whatsoever coming from it. I woke my wife Mxxxxxx up and said “Mxxxxxx I have just seen a flying saucer and it’s heading towards the beach. She said okay Gxxxxxxx and when we bought the local paper next day it stated that a object was seen going into the sea, by at least a dozen people and may I say my wife believed me after that.

       Sir, what the hell is going on [?] Where do these U.F.O.’s come from, it must be a certainty that these U.F.O.’s come and go into the seas.

      May I also explain that since I saw that gray object, its been in my mind ever since. I just can’t get it out of my mind. If only I had a camera in [the] flat at the time. The U.F.O. was about 30 ft. above my window. I don’t care what people say, they can call me a mental case but I know what I saw and may God be my judge, this is the truth. I am a religious man, and this letter is the God’s truth.

       Sir, before I saw this U.F.O. I used to be a proper bastard, I was vicious and bad tempered, and did nor believe in anything, not even the Bible, but since then I have changed. I am a different man. The Lord God is my whole life. I am happy with my second wife and our two children, boy and girl.

       I don’t know how these U.F.O.’s fly (no sound) it must be driven by some type of “Electric” boost.

                                                                                                            Yours Faithfully

                                                                                                            Mr. Gxxxxxx Exxxxxxx

                                                                                                            15th July 1983
