Hello List,

I checked my clippings and found several UK news articles prior
to October 1950. I also found many that I have no date for. Here
are a few of those which I could identify dates for:

3-4-1950 Daily Mail
"The case forthe Flying Saucer"
Part 1 of a special 2-day feature by Richard Greenough

11-4-50 Herald News
Sighting by 3 girls in Preston
Other similar reports in unidentified publications

7-6-1950 Daily Express
"I saw a saucer"
RAF pilots reports FS over South Coast

7-6-1950 Daily Herald
"First Flying Saucer reported here"
Reportedly first official report of a FS over Britain being
investgated by the Air Ministry

13-6-50 (Publication unknown)
"RAF 'shoots down' Flying Saucers"
Stanley Bushop
Experts say they are only air whirlpools

9-7-50 (publication uknown)
"Flying Saucer Riddle"
General FS article, author unknown.

28-7-1950 (publication uknown)
"Flying Saucer seen again"
(FS over Isle of Wight)

This is not an exhaustive list, but does show that there was
significant coverage before October 1950. There seemed to be a
significant increase in column-inches covering the topic in the
latter part of the year though.

As for Nick's article being "nicked" by TNA, my heart bleeds for
you, Nick!
