Hello There, It is easy to mock the dead. Taken From Creightons Obituary for those who have just read the bad stuff. Gordon William Creighton was born in Rickmansworth in 1908. His was a conventional education - Bishop's Stortford College, Cambridge University and the =C9cole Libre des Sciences Politiques in Paris. His years in government service included postings in Europe, North and South America and China. His first post was as an attache to the British Embassy in Beijing, where he later became First Secretary. He performed the duties of consul at Nanking, Shanghai and Recife, Brazil, and was consul-general at Antwerp and New Orleans. His expertise took him into government research on maps in oriental and other languages with the Permanent Committee on Geographical Names, and he spent eight years as an intelligence officer on Russian and Chinese affairs at the Ministry of Defence. It is said that in the intelligence post he worked directly below the secret Whitehall department where the Air Ministry and the RAF were studying information on UFOs. His specialization in international relations in the eastern hemisphere was accompanied by a love of languages. He studied 20 of them, including Russian, Chinese and Sanskrit. Creighton's interest in UFOs was stimulated in the summer of 1941, when he saw "a white disc with a piercingly bright bluish light on top racing through the sky in the far west of China, near the eastern marches of Tibet". At the time he was with the British Embassy in China's wartime capital Chungking. Governments, Creighton believed, have been "lying about the UFO problem for more than 50 years", and take the subject far more seriously than they will admit. According to Flying Saucer Review, "the US Government in particular holds a number of crashed craft and a considerable number of preserved bodies of small dead crew members of a certain species about 4ft-4ft 6 in, in height". He understood this government reticence, however, and feared that the intentions of aliens could be hostile and that detailed information might cause alarm. =46rom John Harney. "So far as UFO research is concerned it can of course be argued that the ufologists should generally confine themselves to merely collecting data about UFO events, and passing it on to the appropriate experts for evaluation. In fact though, practically every UFO investigator has a working hypothesis and he tends to look for evidence to support that hypothesis, while ignoring or not noticing details which seen to him to be irrelevant.
