British officials were dismayed when in 1977 the then Prime Minister of Grenada Sir Eric Gairy wanted to call for the United Nations to set up a unit to investigate UFOs, files from the UK National Archives reveal. The files show how Britain was concerned the idea would drag the UN into disrepute. "The British delegation does not think that the establishment of an agency for research into unidentified flying objects is appropriate to the functions of the United Nations," they said. "Hopefully, a confrontation with the representatives of Grenada can be avoided, but the U.K. should not hesitate to make its views known as and when appropriate." Sir Eric was persuaded to withdraw his proposal but went on to call for 1978 to be designated "the year of the UFO". He was deposed in a coup the following year.
Dr. Gairy confirmed this story to me about his nightly audiences at the "Evening Palace." For as he said, "it was during an late evening at this night club that a fisherman from the north east coast of Grenada came to him with a story that would change his life forever." With in minutes of hearing the fisherman's story, he put together a group of people he trusted, a small military unit with two trucks, and a photographer.
They followed the fisherman north and arrived at the coast just before dawn. There they met with two other fishermen that were standing guard over a tarp-covered object. The tarp was removed to reveal a giant human body that was between 7 1/2 to 8 feet in length. One of the fisherman directed Dr. Gairy to the fact that the body had six fingers on each hand. The body appeared to be of a white skinned man that had long white braided hair. Sir Eric said the body appeared to be of a young man, who if compared to a man of normal size would have been in his early thirties.
By now Sir Eric had concluded that he and his group were looking at an extraterrestrial. He ordered the photographer to take pictures of the body with flash bulbs, but had the foresight to tell the photographer to save some film and wait for better day light.
The alien was dressed in a skintight 1 piece dark blue suit the footwear was attached. This appearance first fooled the fisherman that found him to think that the body was that of a scuba diver that met with some misfortune. After a closer examination they quickly realized that this was not a scuba diver from this world.
Dr. Gairy said that one could stretch the alien's suit to about two feet from the body. The weave did not separate. After releasing the material it would slowly return to its original position on the body and during the course of it doing so, emitted a low audible "humming" sound.
As the sun rose it became evident to Sir Eric and his excited group that the beach was covered by metal wreckage of various sizes. There were also pieces of metal and "containers" rolling about in the surf. These items were photographed.
When all the wreckage they could find on the beach and in the surf was gathered it filled about 1/2 the bed of one of the two pick up trucks that they brought with them. With considerable physical effort they placed the covered alien body on the bed of the second truck.
Among an estimated number of 8 metal containers, they found that they were able to force open two of them. The largest of the two contained specimens of fish and plant life, as well as packets of sand and coral from the seabed.
I asked if he told Kurt Walheim. He said he never got the time or opportunity. "Although the alien body was really my only reason for arranging a one on one talk with him, I was emotionally reacting to the rebellion and I knew I could not prove the story, unless I was back in Grenada and personally showed him the alien body.
Returning to Grenada and being reinstated as Prime Minister was my first priority." My next question was: What do you intend to do about this matter in the future? Sir Eric answered: "I am still formulating my plans." After this meeting I never met with or talked to Sir Eric Gairy again. He suddenly vacated his apartment. I never heard a word as to where he went or what he did.
"I know that flying saucers exist because I myself saw one three years ago, and U.N. diplomats will not think I am crazy for saying so. I am convinced that persons from outer space are studying us, or perhaps living among us as earthlings."
