It sounds like Nick Pope was asked to carry out a favour by his agent and reading between the lines it sounds like he hadn't read the book. If so then
it wasn't the first time and certainly won't be the last time that this sort of blind (or at least partially sighted) endorsement has been carried
out. But fair play to him for replying to the questions.
Nick Pope did a lot to soften media attitudes to Ufology in the UK during his time at the MoD. However now he has chosen to move to the USA and make a
full time living out of "media" work it will be interesting to see how his career unfolds. This makes sense financially for him . There is a much
larger audience to address, on the topics he has 'expertise' in stateside, so good luck to Nick.
But he's not really offered anything new to the Berwyn case with his rather generic endorsement of the book.
And so onto the book itself.
Now I've read it I find a number of other interesting claims/rumored stories (not all these are attributed to Mr. Kellet in fairness):
i) Russ Kellet claims he has 'other' letters from the Coastguard regarding this incident.
ii) There is a documented briefing and other information that was given to Brynmor John (Under Secretary of State) regarding the incident that have
been refused any public release.
iii) The work to produce Electric Mountain in Snowdonia (Dinorwig hydro electric power station) was really cover for engineering a deep underground
iv) Workers on the above uncovered a huge cavern with British military, lizard like creatures and triangular craft inside it.
v) The people of North Wales and Liverpool have a 15 times higher than average rate of leukemia than the UK national average.
vi) A UFO was shot down over Wrexham on Feb 7th 1974.
vii) In the 1950s a group of soldiers encountered a stationery UFO and were trapped in "a strange time zone" until it left a few days later.
vii) A low-yield nuclear weapon was tested on/under British soil in Jan 1974 (which could be linked to point ''v'")
It's often notable throughout this book that sightings of strange lights are often attributed to named witnesses whilst the more controversial stories
are always from anonymous people.
Mr. Pope's endorsement in the book claims :
This fascinating book shines a light on one of the world's most intriguing UFO incidents - a case that may in time come to be known as Britain's
Well maybe? But are they for the right reasons?
