This doesn't make any sense!  Roger certainly knew that
Ray had given film to me, to Philip Mantle, to John Purdy,
etc.  I showed Roger my film samples in North Carolina at
the MUFON conference several years ago.

It appears that Ray has given Roger additional material
beyond what came from Philip, since the material mentioned
above is definitely from the "junk reel" Ray mentioned in
the past.

Ray doesn't want to acknowledge that he does not have, and
has never had, any camera original film, just the copy
print material foisted off on him by the cameraman (who
apparently told him it was camera original material).

This accounts for the biggest discrepancy in the cameraman's
tale, how he could make off with all this film without
anyone noticing.  I speculated several years ago that he
had, in fact, made an unauthorized copy prior to shipping
the original film off to Washington.  This is what he
sold to Ray, and Ray was duped into thinking he had the
original material.

This could also account for Capt. McAndrew's comment to me
that he had seen the same film in Air Force archives.
