Subject: Re: UFO Report from Project Wringer?

Greetings List Member,

   I do not know if this report originated with Project Wringer,
but I suspect it did.  In the Project Blue Book files there is
at least one Wringer UFO report.  Project Wringer existed in
Europe and Asia.  It involved interviewing  1) military,
industrial and other personnel of former Axis countries, 2) POWs
held in the Soviet Union and other communist countries,
3) displaced persons who might have intelligence or military

In a previously cited collection at the National Archives II is
a box of UFO reports found at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base
after the Project Blue Book files were transferred.  There were
several reports similar to the following from German POWs
returned from the East.  The project taking the reports is not
identified, but I believe it was one of Air Intelligence Service
Squadrons engaged in Project Wringer.


10.  SOURCE:  EP 134892,  Rpt. No. 5418-47758 dated 19 January
1954.  Date of Observation:  May 1953 XXXXXXXX

     "Preamble:  During his internment in PW Camp #1 in
STALINGRAD (48/42N 44/30E) SOURCE ?????? some ???? of general
interest and ???? allegdedly observed a couple of flying saucers.
SOURCE was always interned in the camp.  He understood a little

     "Flying saucers:  SOURCE emphasized that he had never seen
or heard anything of flying saucers before he observed two of
then on a dusty morning over STALINGRAD in May 1953 when he
was on guard within the camp.  He observed them in a rather
high altitude flying fast in one direction, one following the
other.  Thinking they had something to do with scientific
research of Russia he forgot about his observation until he
came back home in Oct 53 and saw designs of flying saucers in
West European magazines.  He could not provide further details."

One word is crossed out XXXXXXXXX; others are impossible to
read ??????.
