1966 - YNYSFORGAN, SWANSEA The names of the witnesses have been changed to protect their identities. Late evening. A young couple, Brian and Carol (18), who later married, were in a car driven by Brian on a rough track on the east side of the Swansea Canal at Ynysforgan, and north of the Swansea District railway line which crosses the Swansea valley here. They had been out for the evening, and Brian was expected home at 395 Clydach Road, by his mother at 11 PM. It was near this time that they had arrived back in Ynysforgan. They then encountered a craft, and their memories are incomplete. Brian had driven off Clydach Road down a lane between two houses, over a small stone bridge which crossed the Swansea Canal, following the lane a little way alongside the canal on their right, where he had a garage. He can remember seeing the craft up above the Swansea District railway line which crosses the valley on a high embankment and viaduct at this point. Carol remembers a huge round craft, with many lights hovering a few feet above the ground, with an open door from which there descended a stairway, the steps of which had their own lighting. She described seeing a small being with large head standing in the open doorway. The being had skin the colour of putty, with large black eyes. The being had no clothing, and she remembers being told not to be afraid. She was told to climb the steps and enter the craft, which she did. She remembers thnking as she climbed the steps that it was great that the steps were lit so that she could see where she was stepping. Inside the craft, which was all white, she can remember seeing a control panel, and saw a being - whether or not it was the same being as before, clothed in a white coat. She lay on a metal table or bed, and she was struck by the fact that it did not feel cold. She had some kind of examination or operation, but remembers no details, nor of what followed until being back in the car with Brian. She cannot remember seeing Brian on board the craft. Brian put the car away in the garage, which was his next memory after first seeing the craft, and when they got to his home, his mother asked him why they were so late. Brian said, 'It's only 11 o'clock.' His mother corrected him by saying, 'No it's not, it's 12 o'clock'. They were missing an hour. The site of the 'landing', and also Brian's house were later swept away in 1969 by the construction of the M4 motorway and its junction here. The house was demolished to make way for the west on-ramp of the motorway, and the site where the craft was seen to land is occupied by the trees on the west side of the approach to the M4 roundabout of the A4067 road from Morriston.

6 JANUARY 1966 - SAUNDERSFOOT 6.30 PM. F. W. HOLIDAY writes: "....I was on the wall of Saundersfoot harbour in Pembrokeshire fishing for whiting. The night was cold and still with a slight sea mist. Along with other fishermen I then saw something moving out in Carmarthen Bay. Across our front, from left to right, a luminous object was travelling over the waves at about a mile range and no more than a hundred feet above the water. It seemed to be a glowing, spherical mass giving out a white light which pulsated with a periodicity of about two seconds. Each pulsation lit up the surrounding haze for several times the diameter of the object. It was on a level course and moving at about 250 m.p.h. which soon took it out of sight behind Monkstone Point heading south. The display was in total silence. Although I worked for several years at an R.A.F. Experimental establishment and took part in numerous airborne experiments and also worked at Cambridge Airport and with Cambridge University squadron as an engineer, I felt unable to categorize the object as anything mechanical. I decided it must have been an electrical phenomenon of the atmosphere." Source: The Dragon and the Disc F. W. Holiday 1973 page 108. _______________________________
10 JUNE 1966 - TRIMSARAN 4.30 AM Dave B. was 16-years-old and living in his parents house in Trimsaran. He got up in the night to use the upstairs bathroom. From a window, he saw a pulsating round, spherical object that "looked like the sun," flying slowly at a low altitude of under 500 feet, passing over a coal mine, which was followed by 3 black helicopters. Dave said the UFO was bigger than the helicopters and he watched them slowly pass by for ten seconds. Source: http://www.ufostalker.com/event/84569 citing MUFON.

SEPTEMBER 1966 - SEVEN SISTERS
Between 12.30 AM and 1 AM.
Mrs Dilys Williams of Heol Heddwch, Seven Sisters was lying in bed and looking out of the window. She saw a bright orange object, hovering motionless in the sky. She knew it was not a plane and eliminated everything else that it could be, coming to the conclusion that what she was looking at was a "flying saucer". After a while it moved away. She told her husband and family, but they just laughed.

8 OCTOBER 1966 - TENBY 7.30 PM. F. W. Holiday writes: "I was again fishing, this time in Tenby Harbour. It was about 7.30 in the evening with the sea calm and the sky clear. Presently I became aware that several nearby fishermen were watching the sky directly overhead. Looking up, I saw what can only be described as a small, luminous blue-grey cloud. It was orbiting slowly in a circle equal to about three times its own diameter. Since it was opaque and blotted out the background stars this motion was plainly visible. Ten minutes went by in which interest diminished when, quite suddenly, there was a spectacle as vivid as it was unambiguous. Out of the south-west side of the cloud had emerged a dark object which beamed an intense ruby light down on us. At this point I remember felling a slight shock following the realization that, whatever were the nature of the U.F.O.s, I was at that moment looking at one. Very slowly the red light object moved away towards the south-west. A moment or two later the blue-grey cloud began moving east. In a short time both objects were out of sight on their respective courses." Source: The Dragon and the Disc F. W. Holiday 1973 pages 108 - 109. _________________________________
15 OCTOBER 1966 - PRESELI MOUNTAINS Early evening. F.W. Holiday writes: "I was driving up the A478 road near Foel Dyrch mountain in the early evening when I noticed a moving light in the sky. I had now taken to carrying binoculars around. The object was moving north, nearly parallel to the road, and was about 500 feet above the floor of the valley to the right which brought it almost level with where I was standing. It was about half a mile away when I got it in focus and travelling on a level course at no more than 50-60 mph. I had a very good look at it. It was large but not enormous - perhaps twenty or twenty-five feet long. It was a flattened oval in shape. As the night was clear and starry I was able to look all around it and make quite sure it was not, for example, a window in an aircraft. It was an oval object with a firm outline. No trail was visible nor anything to indicate how it was propelled. I saw no surface details. In colour it was yellow-gold and it had the appearance of being constructed from a glowing, translucent substance. The effect was both beautiful and majestic. I watched it travel through an arc of about 70 degrees before it passed out of sight over the hills to the north." He added that it was completely silent. Source: The Dragon and the Disc F. W.
