....coincidentally, whilst Bob was having his experience, NORAD were having a major 'false positive' of a nuclear strike by the Soviets
The spiked balls make no sense to me. As described, it doesn't seem possible or practical for the balls to propel themselves.....
Matthew Williams who informed me that he remembers watching a programme on T.V. some months back, (he thinks it was an Equinox programme which was on Channel 4 in wh ich they were informing their viewers about various new Military inventions (exotic weaponry ideas and prototypes which were never actually put into any use). He recalls that it featured a device like a round ball which could jump about by punching out pegs fr om it's side. This immediately reminded him of the Livingston Incident.........
.....There are two Military installations near Livingston, one was a nuclear bunker at Wilkiston near East Calder and the other was to the north of Livingston close to where Bob had his experience..........]The MoD facility at Livingston was important enough to have a railway spur installed from the Edinburgh to Glasgow main line directly into the Depot. It is also interesting to note that shortly after Bob's Incident, British Aerospace announced they would cease research and development into unmanned anti tank vehicles. (see Jane's World Aircraft about this period for similar American devices). I think this is what Bob experienced.....
The police reports stated:
"The marks indicated an object of several tons had stood there but no information has been gained to explain them."
After the investigation Wark was in no doubt. He said:
"In my opinion, Mr Taylor genuinely reported what he saw, or believed that he had seen."
He confirmed again later:
"We are still baffled... the case is still open."
The police sent Bob Taylor's trousers to Edinburgh for forensic analysis. Lester Knibb, a forensic scientist in the police's laboratory, found clear tear marks on either side, consistent with the witness's story about being grabbed at waist height by the two spiky sea mines.
Of course the police lab could not say that this should prove anything, but Knibb said:
"The damage could have been caused in the way the witness says. But it would require something mechanical. It was not something caused by an electric shock or bolt of lightning."
To this day the police case still remains open, local authorities marked the site with a plaque, which has since been stolen, and the torn trousers are now in the BUFORA archives.]
[size]One of our most unusual shows. Only UFO case to receive official investigation by authorities. Hosts Tim Beckley and Tim Swartz speak live from Scotland with guest MALCOLM ROBINSON who discusses the bizarre case of Scottish forestry worker Bob Taylor. On November 9, 1979, Taylor and his dog had a close encounter with a landed, spiked, UFO that left the man unconscious and injured. The police recorded the incident as a criminal assault, making it the only UFO sighting in the UK that has been the subject to a criminal investigation. Robinson also relates some alternative explanations on what may have happened to Taylor, including the theory that the man actually suffered from hallucinations after eating poisoned berries!. Robinson For more information obtain Robinson's new book "The Dechmont Woods UFO Incident.

Ah yes mate top movie - thought one of the 'first on the scene' UFO investigators Malcolm Robinson made some great points about Dechmont in the interview below - an object from a Dr Who episode (City Of Death) is also mentioned...
