Looking back: May 27, 1966 - On this day in southwest Hertfordshire...

Reports in the “Observer” that two Garston housewives claimed to have seen a “flying saucer” have brought forward a host of counter claims and theories.

The most startling came from the director of the British “Flying Saucer Review”, Mr. Gordon Creighton of Cedars Avenue. Rickmansworth.

Mr. Creighton, who has made 10 broadcasts and television appearances in the past year on the subject of “unidentified flying objects,” said he would not be surprised if the two housewives had witnessed a landing.

“We don’t think the public are coming forward and saying what they have seen,” Mr. Creighton told an Observer reported this week. “Some of them may be afraid. We do know from reports that there have been many such things seen in and around Watford.”

Mr. Creighton said that he believed there had been landings in Chipperfield and in the Chilterns and he had heard reports that a flying saucer actually landed on Berkhamsted Common about ten years ago.

Mr. Creighton claims a lot of reports on flying saucers and other unidentified objects are “hushed up” by the Government. He also believes similar reports are very carefully censored in the national press.

“A lot of people are very concerned to make out we are cranks,” he said.

“Nevertheless a tremendous lot is happening in this field of unidentified aircraft. Something very dramatic is going to occur one day and then there will be a lot of red faces.”
