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.

"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. "
