I see from:

http://www.catalogue.nationalarchives.gov.uk/rdleaflet.asp?sLeafletID=394

that you have now been duly credited Nick, as has Georgina
Bruni. I was unaware that Georgina was also an MoD employee
however - is this a new job, or was she working covertly
previously?

"The working party's conclusions were set out in a document
dated June 1951 and bearing the designation DSI/JTIC Report No.
7. It was entitled "Unidentified Flying Objects" and classified
"Secret Discreet". The report was located in the MoD archives
following a request made under the Code of Practice for Access
to Government Information by Dr David Clarke of Sheffield
University in 2001. It was also used by Georgina Bruni (MoD) in
her research during this period, and made available at the
National Archives on 1 January 2002 under reference DEFE 44/119"

I didn't spot the "odd discrepancies" which you referred to
above, have they now been corrected as well?


Regards,

Joe
