Newly released UK files reveal that Lord Hill-Norton a former head of the Armed Forces wrote to the defense secretary urging him to “demonstrate a more serious concern” over the Bentwaters UFO sighting. Files released by the Ministry of Defence disclose that Lord Hill-Norton a five-star Admiral and the former Head of the British Ministry of Defense was kept in the dark about the UFO subject during his official capacities. In this short interview with James Fox, the Admiral emphatically states that, “The UFO subject has great significance and should no longer be denied and kept secret; there is a serious possibility that we are being visited — and have been visited for many years — by people from outer space, from other civilizations; that it behooves us to find out who they are, where they come from, and what they want.” This should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation.”
Lord Hill-Norton, a former chief of defense staff, wrote to Michael Heseltine about a UFO hovering in Rendlesham Forest near RAF Woodbridge on December 27, 1980, known as “Britain’s own Roswell”. The late Lord Hill-Norton, a member of House of Lords UFO Group, wrote to Mr. Heseltine in May 1985 to express his concern over the “puzzling and disquieting features” of the case. He referred to the USAF report submitted by Lieutenant Colonel Charles Halt in which the deputy base commander details the account of three patrolmen. Lt Col Halt wrote: “The individuals reported seeing a strange glowing object in the forest. The object was described as being metallic in appearance and triangular in shape, approximately two to three metres across the base and approximately two metres high. It illuminated the entire forest with a white light. “The object itself had a pulsing red light on top and a bank of blue lights underneath. The object was hovering or on legs. As the patrolmen approached the object, it maneuvered through the trees and disappeared.” The commander himself described witnessing three depressions in the ground the next day where the object had been sighted. And later that night he was among several men who saw a “red sun-like light” through the trees which “moved about and pulsed”.
Colonel Halt and a lot of his soldiers — claim that something from outside the Earth’s atmosphere landed at their air force base. They went and stood by it; they inspected it; they photographed it, and found radioactive traces on the ground. Either this happened or the men were hallucinating on a base that houses nuclear weapons. My position is perfectly clear — this is of the utmost defense interest. Why on Earth should he make it up — then, surely, the entry of a vehicle from outer space to a defense base in this country also cannot fail to be of defense interest. It simply isn’t any good for our ministers — and the Ministry of Defense in particular — to say that nothing took place that December night in Suffolk, or that it is not of defense interest. It simply isn’t true.
Since my name has become connected with UFO matters in quite a big way, I have frequently been asked why I think there is a cover-up. The most plausible, is the government’s concern over the public’s reaction if they [were] told the truth — which is that there are objects in our atmosphere which are technically miles in advance of anything that we can deploy, that we have no means of stopping them coming here, and that we have no defense against them, should they be hostile. I believe governments fear that if they did disclose those facts, people. There is a serious possibility that we are being visited.
UFO sightings are now so common; the military doesn’t have time to worry about them. When a UFO appears, they simply ignore it. Unconventional targets are ignored because apparently we are only interested in the Russian targets, possible enemy targets. Something that hovers in the air, and then shoots off at 5000 miles per hour doesn’t interest us because it can’t be the enemy. UFOs are picked up by ground and air radar and they have been photographed by gun camera all along. There are so many UFOs in the sky that the air force has had to employ special radar networks to screen them out”. Thanks to Lee Katchen
