The Midlands & Black Country... Talk Penkridge Mystery!

More by accident than design I came across this thread on the Black Country Gob Forum - oddly entitled  "Cannock Chase Werewolf" it features a rather interesting comment which relates to another eye witness testimony regarding the Penkridge UFO complete with a visit from the "Authorities Responsible for Sightings" here's the link below:

Elsewhere I have to thank Ian Anderson for drawing my attention to the following Link of another forum, this time at the Midlands Heritage site with Links & References to yours truly! Its kinda strange seeing people cross reference your own blog in discussion!

From Penkridge to Porton - Wiltshire?

Bruce George, chairman of the Commons Defence Committee, said it would be "misleading" to say the parliamentary committee knew everything that was going on at the Porton Down base in Wiltshire and that "It's too big for us to know, and, secondly, there are many things happening there that I'm not even certain ministers are fully aware of, let alone parliamentarians."

Whilst spending a quite a Sunday afternoon, perusing the internet. I thought it would be interesting to see how much information could actually be found on line with regards to Leonard Stringfield's Penkridge Mystery.

Heres an interesting notation I found from the link below:

I'm not quite sure where the idea originated, while so little information pertains to the alleged Retrieval Operation at Penkridge and since consideration had already been given to Porton Down for being the recipient of the alleged Crash Retrieval from the Berwyn Mountains episode. Was this a little extra tagged on to enhance the mystery?   

Alternatively the Link below places the final resting place of said object firmly back at Wright Patterson Air Force Base - United States:

Again its unclear whether this originates with Stringfield's source or is another added refinement to embellish the story.

If anybody can elaborate on these articles, although a little dated now. Please let me know.

Penkridge. 2010

The New Year has well and truly left its mark with the arrival of an extremely cold weather spell, whilst it also denotes the start of that quite period at the beginning of each year where new objectives are set, with targets to be achieved and as always a time to start opening new doors... 

Moving forward 2010 will certainly mark a step in the right direction for this Blog, not just in its cosmetic appearance but more importantly in its content, whether for or against the Penkridge Mystery of 1964.

Why the change in title? I felt for sometime that despite Leonard Stringfield's highest regard for his source's testimony, the Dictionary defines an incident as "something that happens" this unfortunately as yet to be realised even with Harold South's testimony.

Whats New?

In addition to introducing some (pending) original Artwork in the Blog, later this year will see the introduction of another UFO case, which allegedly occured on Cannock Chase ten years after the Penkridge Mystery of 64. The intention is to advance and run both of these cases alongside each other since in many respects they overlap in area's of research.

This year will also see the search for Harold South commence in earnest, originally I had not intended to pursue this line of research in the belief that other sources would eventually be found that would either confirm or deny his story. Whilst I have not given up this line of reasoning, metaphorically speaking the ghost of Harold South needs to be placed in a much stronger position or ultimately laid to rest.

Leonard Stringfield's original story forms the corner stone of the Penkridge Mystery and as such holds the key. Although I've said before I have believed the story to have been in circulation much earlier than the 1991 Status Report, this line of reasoning stems from an early recollection of a book reading, quite possibly within the pages of the long forgotten Flying Saucer Review? I honestly cannot say, what I do know is the story has always stayed with me and remains one of the driving forces behind this blog.

Whilst I will not tempt fate with a New Years Resoultion. Might a prediction of Answers in 2010 be considered as worthy of a place in Whitaker's Almanack?
