[Caption of photograph:] Decidedly, Devoisin climbs on a pole. At his feet his friend: "Too late, it's gone."
Their work completed, Bernard Devoisin and Rene Coudette, aged 18, return to Vron on bicycles, when suddenly on the road from Ligescourt to Vron (close to Abbeville) Bernard exclamates: - Look, René, over there, at 70 m... It is not an animal. Hey, in the full middle of the way, a saucer! And the pilot... He has to see us in spite of his diving-suit and his mask. - You think so? - Surely, it circumvents its apparatus in the shape of hive, orange color, and woop! without a noise, the apparatus slides away... Where is it? There, above the beets: it moves towards the "Wood of the Vert-Logis". Not very quickly. It goes at 45 per hour. Yes, but what a mass! At least 2 m. high and 3 m. broad... You would think it will mow the treetops. Will it lander farther?"

The Case was investigated by the northern representative of the Tasmanian UFO Ivestigation Centre, and subsequently reported to Flying Saucer Review by. W. K. Roberts.
The car radio developed a high-pitched wine. It was domed on top, emitted intense oragne-yellow light. Beneath the dome, the UFO was silver-grey in colour. There was a wide band on which there could have been portholes, and six to eight horizontal bands below it, decreasing in diameter; their width was about 5 feet (1.5 meters) in all. At the bottom of the object was a small revolving disc, and below this what appeared to be a bx or tube, which potruded from the base a short way.
