Here, you got me thinking.

People who know about these SAS squads know they were kill squads (shoot first) so anyone going there would not stand a chance.


So why didn't they shoot 'em?

Maybe they thought they were Leprechauns....top o the morning to ya...I'm here all week..


EDIT : Damn it...never saw the previous post...great minds think alike..

To the 'why didn't they shoot them brigade', as said they are highly trained soldiers who do NOT shoot first unless its a planned part of the brief, targets are confirmed before the operation, non combatants are ignored unless they prove to be a threat and even then only after a go is given.

Opening up on an unexpected set of individuals is a no because it gives away any element of surprise, in the case of being sighted by unknowns the unit would withdraw in 99% of cases unless the unit was sure they were not part of the opposing force.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

Which just goes to show how it just takes one person to exaggerate, if not completely make up details to make a story more spectacular, and its taken as "paranormal" by the masses forever:

The lost Sandringhams
During one of these searches a Norfolks regimental cap badge was found buried in the sand along with the corpses of a number of soldiers.The find was reported to the Rev Charles Pierre-Point Edwards, MC, who was in Gallipoli on a War Office mission to find out what had happened to the 5th Norfolks. It was likely that he had been sent there by Queen Alexandra.

The first piece of new evidence was an account of a conversation with the Rev Pierre-Point Edwards some years after the war, which revealed an extraordinary detail he omitted from his official report about the fate of the 5th Norfolks - namely, that every one of the bodies he found had been shot in the head.

It was known that the Turks did not like taking prisoners. This was confirmed by the second piece of evidence, which told the story of Arthur Webber, who fought with the Yarmouth Company of the 5th Norfolks during the battle of August 12, 1915.

Can the true fate of the 5th Battalion now be more fully explained?
In that after their bold dash through the wood on the 12th of August…
Colonel Beauchamp and the Sandringhams were overwhelmed by their Turkish enemies…
They were either captured or they surrendered…
The Turks took no prisoners…
So they were butchered…and buried.
Is this what became of the Vanished Battalion?

There are probably some IRA guys sitting in a bar somewhere saying: “remember that time that we put on those gray rubber suits with the big foam heads and scared the #### out of those commandos that were waiting to ambush us...”

I was under the impression that whatever happens in the SAS stays in the SAS. I doubt some former intelligence officer in the British Army would leak such a story. It's possible, of course, but not very likely. I also doubt a squad of SAS'ers would going running back to camp after an encounter like this. But hey, some reproduction of a newspaper article on the internet says it happened, so it must have...

These blokes weren't always there to kill. Most times it was simply an op so they could id the people making the pick up or make sure that the latest batch of doctored timers really did get picked up.
It's not surprising in the least that they didn't open fire upon a group that obviously weren't their targets.

Nothing. It's just blown up from the original OP to get a better look at the aliens these military men claimed they saw.

Nothing more, nothing less. Just a closer look at what they say they saw. If, it is an accurate rendition of what they saw.

There you go for a close look of what the aliens in the pic look like.



Although that avenue of investigation will get you nowhere. Why not ? Well because I created the picture from a composite of various other pictures and a bit of image manipulation. I often add my own illustrations to a post.

There was no interview given with the SAS troops only a leak by an unnamed former intelligence officer according to the article.

The journalist "Joe Brady" may well not even exist as newspapers often use fake names on a story. In fact it may be that Hugh O'Brien the character mentioned from the Ulster UFO study group did not exist either!

See this 10 years old story

I doubt we'll get any further information about this story now. I first came across it before Christmas whilst glancing through a copy of Flying Saucer Review. I've never been able to corroborate it against any other report and at the time hadn't even seen the actual news report that appeared in the People in 1997.

Of course the available evidence points to to it being a "silly season" story with absolutely no basis in facts. I'll admit though that I find the story intriguing and there is a tiny chance that someone in the military or intelligence community wanted this out in the wild for some reason. Just maybe something like this really did happen in Ulster during the 1990s. Although we'll probably never get anything confirmed officially.

It's a case with an eye catching headline, which seems bogus, but where we are left without enough real information to draw a definite conclusion.

I believe that if this really happened described lin the OP there must be some truth in it , There is no way any SAS team would leave the objective in any normal situation , i mean their proffesional SAS Career would be over the Moment the Base would get to know about the situation and the posibility of locals setting up a epic prank.

If you would be a Battle hardened SAS vet who spend his time in Conflict zones and running Covert ops behind enemy lines would you toss away your career over a supposed alien sighting , you have to be real sure about what you saw to make a decision like this.

A supposed Newspaper Article does not make it real though , but it is very interesting anyway because if it would be true , the SAS men would make very Credible Eye Witneses.

What kind of training would a soldier go thru to prepare himself, to have a chance barely.

S&F for you mirageman..It's cool to see some good content.Beside all the political BS,that swamps the board.

There's no way the SAS guys would have been doing something dodgy,

but I'd question the 'unnamed intelligence officer''s credibility and reasons for 'leaking' the story. or even the person that interviewed the 'unnamed intelligence officer'

Im pretty sure they are to shoot any confirmed aliens no matter what. I think what happened here is that the aliens used their mind control powers and made them run away.

Two decades since and the only evidence remains an article in a tabloid, not a single person has come forward in the intervening years.

What can be claimed without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.

I'm pretty sure this is the British Army on a wind up. SAS missions rarely come into the public domain, for something like this to come out is certainly fabricated. I guess the incentive was both for tactical and comical reasons - Make the IRA believe the SAS are in the area and to gauge the vulnerability of the Irish.

Plus it was printed in The People.
