MEETING BETWEEN MINISTER{DS) AND LORD HILL-NORTON
UFOs
a . I a ccept tha t there a re stra nge phenomena to be seen in the
sky, however I believe there to be a dequa te expla na tions for them.
Experience ha s shown tha t most reported sightings ca n be a ttributed
to things such a s a ircra ft, meteorologica l ba lloons or na tura l
phenomena like ba ll lightning. Of course there a re ma ny other
equa lly stra ightforwa rd expla na tions. However, tITere a re a sma ll
number of ca ses where a simple expla na tion ca nnot be found
immedia tely a nd on these occa sions we a re ca reful to ensure so fa r a s
possible tha t tha t they a re of no Defence sign~ fica nce. Ha ving
sa tisfied ourselves of this, a s you know, we do not a ttempt a ny
further investiga tions. Clea rly some reports rema in unexpla ined but
we ha ve found no evidence tha t these phenomena represent a threa t to
na tiona l security a nd therefore ca nnot justify devoting Defence
resources to their investiga tion.
b. All reports received by the MOD a re cha nnelled through
Seo(A8)2. They a re pa ssed to the Air Sta ff who exa mine them for Air
Defence implica tions. In some ca ses, where (on the fa ce of it) there
CQuld be a defence interest, enquiries a re ma de of releva nt ra da r
est. blishments ete in order to obta in more informa tion. All reports
a re . 1 so pa s. ed to the Defence Intelligence orga ni. . tion who ba ve a

The Flying Complaints Flight at Rudloe Manor are concerned
with receiving and investigating flying complaints. In the course of
their duties they occasionally receive UFO reports (as do m~ ny other
units) but they have no specific role with regard to this subject.
Secretariat (Air Staff) is the Division which provides
secretariat
support to CAS and the Air Staff and in this capacity is
responsible for correspondence with members of the public and
answering PQs etc on many subjectst including UFO’s.
Sec(AS)2 is the
branch which amongst other things handles UFO’s, there is no such
branch as Air Staff Secretariat 8. You may be thinking of Defence
Secretariat
8 which no longer exists and from which Sec(AS) evolved
as a result of reorganisation of MOD last January.
c. Many of the UFO reports received in MOD oome through Defence
establishments, although most of these come originally from members
of the public. Very rew reports are made ~ y military pilots; for
instance, in the last 12 months Sec{AS) has received only two such
reports.
d. No central record of radar recordings is kept. Major Air
Traffic Control units take recordings as a matter of course, however
these are generally destroyed after
30 days. ADGE units do not
regularly make recordings although some are occasionally made for
specific operational purposes. Relevant radar units are consulted
where necessary as part of the normal process of handling UFO reports
in order to ascertain whether there is any correlation between a
reported atlnting and known radar traces.

RAF WOODBRIDGE INCIDENT 27 Dee 80
Col Halt’s report of 13 Jan 81 concerns the sighting of
unusual lights outside the back gate at RAF Woodbridge by two
security patrolmen. Col Halt records what was subsequently reported
to him without comment. The 3
patrolmen who went into Rendlesham
Forest to investigate what they thought might be a crashed aircraft
say they saw a triangular object. It has been suggested that this
might have been a piloted vehicle, however in view of its reported
size (about 9 feet long and 6 feet high) this was, and still is,
considered highly unlikely. Indeed enquiries made both at the time
and subsequently failed to reveal any radar trace of anything unusual
in the area at the time.
Col Halt also reports on his own investigations at the site of
the incident the following day. Once again he draws no conclusions
from his findings and, significantly, does not recommend further
investigation. Our own view also was that no additional action was
required. Later on the night of 29 Dee 80 Col Halt and a number of
others saw more unusual lights, but again we haY ~ no record of
anything untoward being picked up on radar.
I think you will agree that it is highly unlikely that any
violation of UK airspace would be heralded by such . display of
lights.. I th I( equall y
unlikel
y
that any
recormaisssnce or
spying
activit would be an U!HHH in this 14 $ 1.
’ .
Overall, we believe that the fact that Col Halt did not report
these occurrences to HOD for aLmost 2 weeks after the event, together
with the relatively low key manner in which he handled the matter
(given resources available to him) are indicative of the degree of
importance in defence terms which should be attached to the incident.
He himself took all investigative action which was required. If
members of the public feel that for scientific or other reasons,
there should be an attempt to establish the cause of what happened,
that is for them, but I am confident that it is not something in
which the MOD should or need become further involved.

MEETING BETWEEN US of S(AF) AND LORD H ILL- NORTON
UFOs
a . I a ccept tha t there a re stra nge phenomena to be seen in the
sky,
however I believe there to be a dequa te expla na tions for them.
Experience ha s shown tha t most reported sightings ca n be a ttributed
to things such a s a ircra ft, meteorologica l ba lloons or na tura l
phenomena like ba ll lightning. Of course there a re ma ny other
equa lly stra ightforwa rd expla na tions. H owever, there a re a sma ll
number of ca ses where a simple expla na tion ca nnot be fo d
immedia tely a nd on these occa sions we a re ca reful to ensur tha t they
a re of no Defence significa nce. H a ving sa tisfied ourselves of this,
a s you know, we do not Bttempt a ny further investiga tions. Clea rly
some reports rema in unexpla ined but we ha ve found no evidence tha t
these phenomena represent a threa t to na tiona l security a nd therefore
ca nnot justify devoting Defence resources to their investiga tion.
b. All reports received by
the MOD a re cha nnelled through
Sec(AS)2. They a re pa ssed to the Air Sta ff who exa mine them for Air
Defence implica tions. In some ca ses, where (on the fa ce of it) there
could be a defence interest, enquiries a re ma de of releva nt ra da r
esta blishments etc in order to obta in more informa tion. All reports
a re a lso pa ssed to the Defence Intelligence orga nisa tion who ha ve a
keen interest in a ny sightings of unusua l objects. We ha ve no
specia list group a nywhere else involved in UFO’s a nd
The Flying Complaints Flight at Rudloe Manor are concerned
with receiving and investigating flying complaints. I n the course of
their duties they occasionally receive UFO reports (as do many other
units) but they have no specific role with regard to this subject.
Secretariat (Air Staff) is the Division which provides
secretariat support to CAS and the Air Staff and in this capacity is
responsible for correspondence with members of the public and
answering PQs etc on many subjects, including UFO’ s. Sec(AS)2 is the
branch which amongst other things handles UFO’ s, there is no such
branch as Air Staff Secretariat 8. You may be thinking of De~ ence
Secretariat 8 which no longer exists and from which Sec(AS) evolved
as a result of reorganisation of MOD last January.
c. Many of the UFO reports received in MOD come through Defence
establishments, although most of these come originally from members
of the public. Very few reports are made by military pilots;
for
instance, in the last 12 months Sec(AS) has received only one such
report.
d. [GE3 to provide advice please]
e. The Department is happy
to release what information we have on
specific incidents. However we could not justify the effort involved
in searching for or collating information of a more general nature.

I n troub ling you with these q uestions I am well aware that
their su B et matter has often b een thought easy to ridicule,
especial when associated with 8 0me of the wilder notions which ar
current among the civilian research groups. I am not wedded to any
particular theory myself. I do, cn the other hand. b elieve that
there is overwhelming evidence for a persistent phenomenon of a
highly Uflllsual charactero This is, at the least,of considerab le
scientific interest; and I have not yet
heard anything from your
Department which convinces me that it is wholly without Defence
sign if ance. I would b e reassured to know either that it is b eing
adeq uately q ricoed as a Defence matter (and. if so. b y P recisely"

seems to me to deserve closer and more expert attention in Whitehall than we are
led to believe it gets at present. There is evidence that at least three other
governments take the phenomenon seriously. A mass of documents released in the
U S under the A merican Freedom of Information A ct shows a close and continuing
interest
by
governmental agencies. The French agency G E P A N (G roupe
d’E tudes des
P hlnomtnes A rospatiaux N on-identifits) which was set
up by
the then French
Minister of Defence in 1977 under C N E S (C entre N ational d’E tudes S patiales)
rem-
ains in existence despite the heavy retrenchment in French government expenditure
and continues to collect and analyse U FO reports country--wide. A nd there is a
degree of recent evidence in the S oviet P ress that the Russians take a close
interest in the phenomenon through the Moscow A viation Institute and (possibly)
the N ational A cademy of S ciences.
Is it really the case that the British N O D
takes no systematic interest (as distinct from dealing ad hoc with what are felt
.. .. ...--
to- etiresome. E HlquiI:iesfrom.thepubU c) 1 Lftherereallyis. no systematic
study of the phenomenon, viz . something in the nature of a small expert committee
in Whitehall or the placing of responsibility on a designated and expert director-
ate in the MO D, should there not be ? Is there no liason with French and U S
agencies ?
I hope that you will reel able to comment on the three questions at
the end of the preceding paragraph. I ask them, not in any spirit of contention,
but because I believe that we cannot afford to ignore a persistent phenomenon
which other countries appear to take seriously. It seems to me to deserve systematic
study within a Defence context, even if only to dismiss it in the end as trivial.
I think you will know that there are others~ whose judgement is to be respected and
whose experience qualifies themtwho take a similar view, Lord Hill-N orton among
them.
To return to the particular case of RA F Woodbridge, you may already
be aware that television documentaries of the occurrence have been made
by
two
foreign companies. The programme made
by
C able N ews N etwork is now likely to be
shown in this country before long, I have not yet seen the documentary in full,
myself, but I understand from the organisation that they claim to have established
a number of facts which are very much at odds with the view that C ol. Halt and
other U S A F personnel merely misperceived some phenomenon with a wholly conventional
explanation (the O rfordness lighthouse, a satellite re-entry, a bright meteor).
The following are among the more important points which C able appear to be claiming.
1. C ol. Halt adheres to the report of 13th January 198 1, of which the MO D
has a copy. He also confirms the authenticty of a tape-recording made by
himself on site on the night of 29th December 198 0 which tallies with
paragraph 3 of his report (and in some respects goes beyond it).
2. O ther witnesses to the events of 27th and 29th December 198 0 reported
by
Halt have made sworn depositions.
3. A lthough not reported by Halt, there was an unusual occurence near
RA F Woodbridge on the night of 26th December 198 0. A n unidentified object
in an area of Rendlesham Forest sufficiently worried U S A F personnel to
cause them to seek help from the S uffolk police. P olice officers at
Woodbridge (the village) have confirmed that they responded to this call,
albeit without establishing unambiguous evidence at the site of the
’sighting’ claimed
by
the U S A F contingent which had been sent to investi-
gate it.
4 . There is evidence that RA F Watton (and perhaps other radar installations)
had radar traces on at least one of the three nights in question of an
unidentified aerial object in the area of RA F Woodbridge/Rendlesham Forest,
5 . There is evidence that a 16mm cine-film was made at the site by
U S A F
personnel on 29th December 198 0 and was referred for study by
the U S A F
headquarters in G ermany.

It grieves me to add that I think we have some evidence of direct and del ib -
erate mis- statement on the part of the M inistry of Defence in at l east one important
case, the occurrence of strange events on two nights in l ate Decemb er 1980 in a part
of R endl esham Forest adjoining the US A F Base at R A F Woodb ridge. We have the evidence
for these events in a
statemeg; I, , ~ . t. s. ned
on 13th January 1981 b y the then Deputy Base
C ommander, L t. C ol . (now ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ )
C harl es Hal t of the United S tates A ir
Force. T his statement was not made pub l ic until 14th June 1983 when
-
fol l owing
persistent pressure b y the authors of C L E A R INT E NT (see ab ove)
-
its rel ease was
authorised b y the US A F in A merica under the Freedom of Information A ct. Whether this
rel ease was an inadvertency at rather l ow l evel in the US A F we may never know: despi1
the Freedom of Information A ct, A merican agencies have proved perfectl y capab l e (and
often no doub t with good reason) of sustaining ob jections in the courts to the rel -
. . . . .
. . . . ease. ofdocuments. . T heI’ e. . iscertainl ysomeevidence. tha. tHaIt was not consul tedab ou1
the rel ease and that it somewhat dismayed him. Be that as it may, however, the l etteJ
of rel ease incl uded the extraordinary statement that the US A F had disposed of its o~
copy
of Hal t’ s
report b ut that:
" . . .
through dil igent inquiry and the gracious conse1
of Her M ajesty’ s government, the British M inistry of Defence and the R oyal A ir Force
the US A ir Force was provided a
copy for you. " T he M inistry of Defence have confirm~
in repl y to a P arl iamentary Question tab l ed
b y M ajor S ir P atrick Wal l , M P , that a
copy
of Hal t’ s
report was indeed received b y them. Y et we are tol d in a recent b ook.
S K Y C R A S H b y
Brenda Butl er, Dot S treet and Jenny R andl es (Nevil l e S pearman ~ d. , 1984
that the M inistry of Defence had fl atl y denied any knowl edge of suppose
l
~ R endl esh~
Forest when enquiries were made to them in 1981, fol l owing strong l ocal rumours of aJ
extraordinary occurrence.
T he M inistry of Defence may wel l have good reasons for withol ding information
ab out the R endl esham incidents. A s a former Defence pfficial , I woul d not wish to
press questions on any matter touching national security; and in those circumstances
I woul d not b e surprised if questions pressed b y others were met
b y
a refusal to
repl y. But I cannot hel p feel ing that it is something of a l apse from the usual
standards of a government department to issue a direct mis- statement. C onceal ment is
one thing (and is often justified) , fal se denial is quite another.
T he R A F Woodb ridge case of Decemb er 1980 strikes me as one of the most interes
ing
and important of recent years, anyway
in this country
-
perhaps the most signifi
cant mil itary sighting (or supposed sighting) since the cel eb rated events of 13th/14
A ugust 1956 near R A F Bentwaters and R A F L akenheath (b oth of which are, b y
an enter-
taining coincidence, quite cl ose to Woodb ridge in that much- haunted county of S uffo!
T hose who wish to study the Bentwaters/L akenheath incidents wil l find descriptions
of them in the b ooks mentioned b el ow. T he R A F Woodb ridge case is describ ed at l ength
in S K Y C R A S H (see ab ove) . It is al so to b e the sub ject of several radio and tel evisio
programmes. M uch was said ab out it in T HE NE WS O F T HE WO R L D in 1983. mainl y in its
issues of 2 nd and 9th O ctob er. A l one in Fl eet S treet, the then editor, Derek Jameson
decided to give space to Hal t’ s
report; and K eith Beab ey of T HE NE WS O F T HE WO R L D
pursued it vigorousl y in the face f the kind of ridicul e which the
Uqual ity’ ! news-
papers seem to find it expedient to attach to this mysterious and persistent phenom-
enon.
It was the Woodb ridge case which prompted me to take up
a l ong- shel ved intenti
to write a
tl UFO b ook" . I have chosen, quite del ib eratel y, to cast it as a piece of
fiction. Fiction al l ows the imagination to range widel y, and it seems to me that thi
can sometimes b e productive in turning b etter- qual ified minds to new aspects of a
prob l em. A fal se hypothesis can often have as much heuristic val ue as a good one !
It does, at the l east, enab l e serious researchers to consider
-
and properl y
test
-
a new idea, even if onl y to throw it away when it fail s to stand up
to scrutiny. I a
far from b eing wedded to the hypothesl son which A S E C R E T P R O P E R T Y is b ased. T he
main ob ject of the b ook is to entertain, and to do so in the form of a thril l er. It
most certainl y does not refl ect any inside knowl edge or startl ing revel ation on the
part of a former Defence official . (If I had such knowl edge, the O fficial S ecrets A c
woul d forb id me to reveal it I) .
