Its nice to see Colonel Charles Halt showing a copy of Haunted Skies which was sent to him recently. We thank him for that, and he has all three Volumes with a promise of the fourth when it is avaliable to buy. We have no idea why it is taking so long and urge the many people that keep contacting us to be patient , it is a matter that is out of our hands.
We are also hoping that Edgar Mitchell one of the famous 'moonwalkers' will add his comment on the content of two volumes of Haunted Skies which he is in posession of, although he has rejected a suggestion for a foreword to one of the Volumes, which at the end of the day is of course his choice.
I dont often get around to replying to forums on the UFO subject as I am kept busy preparing Volume 5 which is nearing completion. Dawn has spent many hours proofing this document prior to taking it to the Publisher in early February. Ive been chasing up the many images to be used and can say that our old friend Wayne Mason is now back on line and preparing some computer generated images which are the 'cherry on the cake' with some of the more important cases. He is a credit to his Mum Elaine and we thank him for his assistance.
The UFO Status Quo (No its not the group!)
Here is a copy of part of what I wrote:to a blog the other day after reading that a so called UFO expert had suggested that all UFOs could be explained away as natural phenomena!
Whilst in my opinion there is no such a thing as a UFO expert there are some that know more than others, about a subject which still attracts the attention of the media.
Sadly there is a vast gulf between how the media treat such reports, in various documentaries on UFOs ( same old same old) and tabloid newspaper articles which seek to denigrate the subject, by offering that age old balanced perspective.
Sadly there is also a vast gulf between what the MOD declassifies and the real accounts from real people who have suffered all manner of medical maladies stretching from minor to serious.
One such case in 1994, involved a then serving Police Officer who was unfortunate to suffer the consequences after having sighted a saucer shaped object over the River Nene in Northamptonshire. The Police Officer went to see his Doctor after experiencing severe headaches and was given an MRI scan; the Doctor asked him if he had ever had an operation on the brain (No) because there was scarring on the brain! I have heard similar stories from people that have been exposed to the energies given off by these objects.
The problem is that we (the human participants) are not being given the opportunity to tell the media of sightings like this How long is the human race going to bury its head into the sands and deny something that stands in front of us, it is not about confrontation.
At the end of the day the evidence is overwhelming, but of course it was in 1947, in the States and in the UK during 1977 and 1995 when there was an increase in activity( in my opinion the 'flow' remains the same. It appears that when certain criteria is met that we see more of what is going on in the sky........
I could cite many cases, like this, the one that I found poignant was a woman from Attelborough Norfolk who said in her letter, " I hope that I live long enough to find out what these things are" She passed away many years ago.
Likewise the Police Officer(now retired) who I spoke to today said, “ I will go to my grave knowing that what I saw and what I experienced was so out of the ordinary It cannot be explained away”David Bryant rang, he is now a valued and trusted friend who shoots straight from the hip! a no nonsene man and as straight as a dye! He has given much support over the years and is a credit to the the UFO subject.
Albert Rosales has also been in touch letting us have more details of his up to date catalogue of not only strange craft seen in the World wide skies but their even weirder occupants! Well done Albert I will post up your picture when I find it!
Brenda Butler from Suffolk has been in touch just general chit chat about UFO activity in the local area, I will get an update from her shortly which I will post up.
Early 1979 UFO magazine from our friend Dan Goring
For those of you that are looking forward to seeing Travis here are some newspaper cuttings.....I did email him about the visit in June he confirmed the date, but failed to answer any other questions put to him about his version of events for the blog. I presume he is a busy man and we wish him the best when he comes over.

This was in response to a UFO filmed over Swindon by a local man.
This letter was sent to us by Pat Smith she and Kath Smith ( no relation) were responsible for producing many 'UFOLOGS' an original UFO Magazine along with Leonard Cramp
of the Isle of Wight UFO Society. Kath Smith still asks me now "Do you think they will ever relase the truth about UFOs to the public?" My Answer- not for many years if that!
Two of my favourite girls! Corrina and Prudence Downes (No Prudence is not doing that!) and no she is not related to Lord Prescott.!
Taken at Rendlesham Forest a few years ago. no idea what it is,but I have to say that we also came across a photo of a tiny flying saucer just above the tree line. To the naked eye it was saucer shaped but when enhanced lost a lot of its image and didnt look saucer shaped any more, this was not due to any pixealation in my opinion. As Don Ramkin will tell you its a very eerie place at night and he like us has experienced the fall of a warm stone.
By the way Don give my love to the cats and wish Gemma the kitten a return to full health, following her recent operation . I also hope Jean has got over her cold.
Email from Don.....................
Well the good news is that finally after 3 days at the vets we've been able to bring our kitten home .Its really been a worry to have a kitten that was its normal weight , totally fine and playing happilly with its sisters to suddenly go downhill so fast and lose alot of weight , then to find out its got a twisted bowl and needs surgery it MAY not survive from , but you have to try don't you .
Thankfully surgery went well and each day we had to ring up for updates , but recovery was good and were told how well kitten was doing and that it had been eating and playing with its little ball they'd put in with it , then today we got the news that we could come and pick it up .
It does look funny with its little funnel thing on , but its had white chicken and abit of tuna in brine (thats all it can eat for 1wk little but often) , so after what its been through ( and put US through ) this is one kitten thats not being rehomed like its siblings as its got a loving home WITH US . Oh by the way John whats happening with Volume 4 Im desperate to get hold of a copy im only in my 40's
Don was reassured that it wont be long now.................
Maude who passed away now 3 years ago.... This is not the work of a CGI this was the real thing !
At 8pm 22nd October 1991 Bill Eatock from Hindley Wigan, then a UFO Investigator for Quest a UFO organisation headed by retired Police Sergeant Tony Dodd, was carrying out a test on some ‘walky talky radios’ he had just purchased, and was driving along a Country road , on a clear dry night with good radio reception, when he encountered a bank of fog, followed by a high pitched whining noise loud enough to hurt his ears.“I instinctively bent down to check the car radio was off, which it was, my left ear and left side of the face felt as if they were burning, I was so agitated I pulled the wires out of the car radio and made my way home, where I went into the bathroom and saw the ‘sun tan’ down the one side of my face, then I was very sick vomiting up load of clear liquid, almost as if something had been pumped into me
My ear was also bleeding, wondering what the hell had happened I made my way to bed and felt like I was dying, and my Wife thought I had been in a car accident. The following day my body was aching all over, my ear was still trickling blood, and my face looked burnt on the one side, and I discovered what looked like puncture marks and bruises on my legs and body.
When I went to the Doctor’s, he asked me if I had fallen asleep under a sun lamp, and sent me to Wigan Infirmary for blood tests where I discovered that I had lost a number of white blood corpuscles.The Doctor asked me if I had ever worked in a power station as my symptoms indicated exposure to an electro magnetic force field. After three days my condition stabilised and I was allowed to go home”
Bill decided to undergo hypnotic regression, hoping to learn more about what he viewed as a remarkable inexplicable experience having exhausted any rational explanation, and was shocked to discover after listening to a copy of the regression carried out that his worst fears had been realised, when he described what will by now become an all to familiar story involving being
“taken on board some sort of craft, and seeing several small large headed creatures who were accompanied by a tall human apparently in charge.’ Rather frighteningly I realised I was not the only ‘captor’ there I saw a girl also present her face was to be burnt into my memory”
Incidents like that described by Bill and so many other genuine people whom we met over the years, involving what appears to be representative of some form of alien behaviour seems impossible to believe, and in conflict with the very ideals of human life, but how does one explain away rationally what happened to Bill, and so many others (Source Wigan Reporter 27.12.96/2.1.97. ‘UFO Update’/Personal Interview)

Happy New Year 2012! Update on Haunted Series of Books
At the moment we are busy scripting the 5th Volume, which we hope will run from 1972 to 1976 (inclusive) - fingers crossed! And John is checking over the hundreds of images and text for Volume 6, which is currently at 50K+ words and approx 90 pages, which may mean hopefully that Volume 6 could include 1978. Time will tell....
Telephone-wise it’s been quiet. I spoke to Philip Mantle tonight. He wants Volume 3 for his collection so we sent one. People have been contacting me about Volume 4 but there is no sign of it yet on Amazon.com. As soon as I have copies I'll forward some on to those who have clicked the button!
Brenda Butler has been in touch. Her new book is progressing and we wish her well with it. She tells me that there has been an increase in activity around the Forest, and that there have been many sightings of what look like 'Hooded Monks' walking along the forest tracks.
Another reminder that it isn't only stones that fall into Rendlesham Forest! We have heard of coins and nails falling from the sky but a plastic elephant! Fact is stranger than fiction! Here is what Don picked up!
UFO landing Gloucestershire 1994
A married couple was driving along the A419 between Frampton Mansell and the Sapperton turn off at 9.49pm 15th March 1994 heading towards Cirencester when they noticed a white light descending through the sky which they took to be a meteorite. Their curiosity aroused they decided to pull up to have a closer look at a point where they thought the ‘object’ had come down
"After stopping we were amazed to see in a field too our left at a distance of about 80-120yards a triangular white light close to some green lights which were darting about rapidly but becoming stationary from time to time, illuminating the ground with a pinky purple light which appeared to be about two feet above the ground. I got out of the car leaving my wife still in the vehicle and continued to keep observations for a few more minutes, during which time I saw green lights with conical beams illuminating the ground and moving about erratically I was not parked very safely, I decided to drive around to the other part of Sapperton Road north of the A419 which took me about six minutes when I reached that point I looked out and saw the green conical beams were still there going on and off. I then reported the matter to the Police at Cirencester at 10.20pm they said they would send a mobile unit to have a look “
We spoke to Ronald Ratcliffe an Amateur Astronomer from Malinslee Telford Shropshire about what he saw at 9.38pm on the 21st of June 19991, while in the back garden taking in some air
” I was looking north when I saw a stationary object in the sky, lit up by the reflection of the sun, I estimated it was some 50miles away the length, its length being 2.5times the size of Venus at its brightest. After a few seconds it moved from right to left out of the Sun, then turned towards me as a grey mass, as it passed overhead approximately 800 feet in height an RAF Fighter Aircraft came up behind it, the Plane and the ‘Mass’ then went above the clouds and I lost sight of them for goo
At 11.24pm 22nd June 1991, a number of people had travelled down to Wiltshire to take part in a sky watch organised by the Beckhampton Centre for Crop Circle studies.
While overlooking the vicinity of Milk Hill Alton Barnes a large bright orange ball appeared flashing once and sharply defined against the black sky, was seen .Was there a connection with an earlier sighting of a red flickering glow on the horizon above Milk Hill seen to ‘switch on and off’ several times during the ten minutes of observation.? (Source: MOD Declassified records DEFE 24 1966)
At 10.30pm 23rd June 1991 an’ oblong cylinder with green and red flashing lights ‘was seen over Manor Road, Grimethorpe Barnsley by local resident, Peter Greenwich, who was walking his dog Butch at the time which ran around excitedly during the time the object took to pass over.
