I have been for , quite a while now, trying to track down the name of a lass from Cornwall England who appeared on TV in Britain some years back, on
the Morning Magazine show called *Richard and Judy*...
I'd like to help you in your search, but it would be very helpful to know how sure are you of the details that you give in your original post.
Did you take a note at the time or are you merely relying upon a recollection of a show "some years back"? If the former, can you share the full
note that you made? If the latter, I wonder how confident you are when including some of the more precise details in your post, e.g. your statement
that the relevant woman stated that her father "died of cancer in 1974"? Can you really remember the year that she said in that show "some years
I've taken the liberty of posting your query on 2 UK discussion forums that I participate on, with some of the best known UK researchers.
In a response on the [www.ufodata.co.uk...

appeared confident that he could identifty the relevant officer:
The officer in question was 'Brownie' Melvin Brown who after his service in the U.S. Airf Force married an english girl and settled in this
I have met the daughters in London several years ago and her father admitted to guarding the bodies on a flight to Wright Paterson Airbase.
His military record is genuine and the daughters have featured on several Roswell Documentaries.
However, while Russ may be right, the details you gave in your request do not fit completely with Melvin Brown (which may simply be the result of an
imperfect recolection by you of the relevant TV show). In particular:
(1) Although Melvin Brown settled in Britain, I think he was an American and thefore does not fit your recollection of the relevant woman describing
her father as "a serving officer in the RAF", that she had been told by the Air Force that "Sorry young lady, but no British officer served with
the 509th" and that she "then pulls out an old B & W photo of a bomber crew in full flying kit, points to a guy wearing a British flying hat in the
picture and says thats my father".
(2) You stated that the relevant woman stated her father "died of cancer in 1974". Melvin Brown died later (in, I think, about 1986). I do wonder,
however, how your recollection of the date of the father's death can be so precise given that you appear to be relying upon a recollection that of a
TV show several years ago (and, in contrast, you do not have a recollection/record of the name of the relevant woman).
Melvin Brown is discussed in various UFO/Roswell books, and on various websites including:
Have you already considered information about Melvin Brown and his daughter, Beverley Bean?
If you look at Kevin Randle's blog at the link above, you can see a picture of Beverley Bean.
Is that the woman that you saw? Does Beverley Bean's story accord with your recollection of the story you heard, or does it differ?
