Subject: UFO Documents On MOD Website

Dear All,

Various UFO documents are now available on the Ministry of
Defence website. These comprise a brief policy statement on the
issue, a 1951 report from the so-called Flying Saucer Working
Party, and papers from the file on the Rendlesham Forest
incident (a.k.a. the Bentwaters incident).

The material can be found at the following links:




Alternatively, go to the MOD website at:


and click on "Freedom of Information Act 2000". Then click on
"Search for Information", and enter the phrase "UFO".

The release of this material has been a big story in the UK
today. Georgina Bruni, whose work with former Chief of the
Defence Staff Lord Hill-Norton led to the release of much of
this material, has spent much of the day recording television
and radio interviews.

Researchers such as Georgina have acquired this material by
using the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information.
So the material has been seen before, and indeed many of the key
documents were published in Graham Birdsall's UFO Magazine some
time ago. But now the material has been posted on the MOD's
website, anyone may see these documents.

Best wishes,

Nick Pope
