The date on the documents shown in the CH4 Doc "Incident at Roswell
was July 26th 1947 and from the date I observed it was fully typed.

I keep on asking myself why was there a 3 week+ gap between the
event and Frank writing up his report, it seems an over long
period of time, I would expect a report to be written while
events were still fresh in the memory. I would also expect "the
brass" upstairs would have wanted a report with some urgency

Has Frank got his "remembered" dates wrong?.

A few thoughts: (if the reports are the real thing)

The reports date is typed as July 26th 1947.

If Franks report WAS typed up "shortly" after the events they
refered to, which to me, would seem the most probable course of
events rather than waiting about 2-3 weeks before forwarding it,
it would shift Frank's event a couple of weeks later than the
"classic" Roswell event!

It would seem that,if you take this timeline on board, not to
mention the alledged AA/Soccoro crash attributed to May/June,
unidentified craft were dropping on NM with some regularity.


Was the tiny amount of news to "leak"? out from Roswell, and I
feel it was an accidental leak, just one tiny aspect of a
"greater game" being played out that summer.

It might be interesting to have some comments from people who
might know of the "normal" US military procedure of the time in
respect of filing reports.

Has anyone ever asked Frank what was the delay?

Any takers?
