Lost Wreckage of 'British Roswell' Flying Saucer Discovered in Science Museum

UFO

Missing Wreckage – Silpho UFO

The missing wreckage of a flying saucer addressed as the `British Roswell’ has been discovered in a tin box in Science Museum in London. The piece of metal located in 1957 on Silpho Moor near Scarborough, North Yorkshire had been quite strange that it was named as `Silpho UFO’.The disc being 16 inches in diameter was said to weigh 22 lbs. had been inscribed with hieroglyphics identical to the wreckage of the so-called spacecraft discovered in June 1947, at Roswell, New Mexico. When the disc had been cut open, a book was found within which was made of 17 thin copper sheets wherein each sheet was covered in more hieroglyphs.

Phillip Longbottom, a local care owner had claimed that the hieroglyphs translated into a 2000-word message that had been sent by an alien known as Ullo containing a warning which stated that `You will improve or disappear’. The remnants of the wreckage had been sent to the Natural History Museum in London where the experts have arrived at a decision that it could probably be an elaborate hoax since there had been no evidence that the metal neither came from elsewhere in the Solar System nor had suffered high temperatures of entering the atmosphere of the Earth. All the same, Air Chief Marshal Lord Dowding believed that the piece from the wreckagehad been an extra-terrestrial and had stated that the same had been examined by him in 1959 andit was found to be a `miniature flying saucer’.

Mysterious Object – Museum Files

It is yet uncertain as to what really happened to the item of the wreckage thereafter and the members of the UFO community eventually were of the belief that it had been scrapped off deliberately. However it now seems that item of wreckage had been sent in 1963, to the Science Museum in London and laid forgotten in the files for over 50 years.

The same was discovered only after Dr David Clarke of Sheffield Hallam University had given a talk recently on the release of the Ministry of Defence files of UFO at the Science Museum. According to him one of the museum staff had tapped him on the shoulder and asked him if he was aware that the bits of flying saucer wreckage had been kept in a cigarette tin in the museum group store for years.He informed that he had been totally amazed when later on the tin box had been opened and found the wreckage in it. It was clear that there were the remnants of the missing Silpho Saucer which some had claimed as the answer to the popular Roswell incident of Britain.

He further stated that it had been unbelievable to know that the pieces of this mysterious object had been in a museum files for over half a century. The former editor of UFO Brigantia magazine, Andy Roberts had stated that the Silpho Saucer story had been the answer to Roswell incident of Britain wherein a crashed flying saucer was apparentlyflown away from a ranch in New Mexico in 1947.

Amazing Breakthrough

According to him it was an amazing breakthrough and incredible to know that all this while the pieces of the mysterious wreckage was lying in the museum files. The flying saucer had initially been found Scarborough businessman Frank Dickenson who had been driving in the proximity of the moor with two of his colleagues when they had spotted a glowing object in the sky which seemed to fall to the ground.

He discovered the wreckage of the metallic saucer fallen in a patch of bracken and had returned back to inform his colleagues and when they had gone back to the wreckage it seemed to have disappeared.

Frank had been desperate to locate the wreckage and had placed an advert in one of the local paper where a man had come up and sold the same to him for £10. On purchasing the wreckage back, Frank, together with Anthony Parker and Phillip Longbottom had forced the object open to find traces of glass, ash and copper book inside.

Tests that had been carried out at Manchester University had disclosed that the shell of the object comprised of lead and the copper parts seemed to be of unusual high purity. Further test had also been carried out at Manchester University and it was discovered that the same could not have come on Earth from space since it was not exposed to high temperatures.

Jenny Randles and UFO expert had commented that it is the most costly as well as a well-organized hoax which had even taken place in Britain. When the reported crash had taken place it had caused tremendous concern since the space race between the US and Soviet Union had just started and they had apprehension that the object could be from a spy satellite.
