“The witness called the airport regarding this sighting, but no one there could offer any information. R.W. then went to the Columbian newspaper to share his story, who reported it in the next edition, and to R.W.’s dismay, included his name and address. This was soon followed by a telephone call and a visit from a military man, a Sgt. Major, who said he was from Jericho Beach military base. After arriving at the witness’ home, dressed in full uniform, and arriving in a green military car, he asked if he could come in and discuss the sighting with the witness and his parents. He supplied the three of them with note pads and pencils, and asked them to go into separate rooms and draw what they had seen the day of the sighting. They agreed.”
“Approximately 2 weeks later they got a visit from an individual described as very tall and lanky with a military type haircut, dark wrap around glasses, and a sickly looking greyish white complexion. He said that he had seen the article in the paper and would like to talk to them about the sighting. The witness and his parents invited him in. When offered some coffee and cookies, he seemed puzzled, and asked "What is this?", to which the mother replied "it’s just coffee." The visitor then gulped the very hot coffee straight down, crumbled the cookies up with his hands, and put them in his mouth! He spoke with a slow, slurred type of speech, and seemed to have something like a British accent. During the conversation he was asked where he was from, to which he replied "Oh, quite a distance from here". He went on to say that he was to have met with the object the day of the sighting, but that he had been ‘late’. Noticing the TV set in the corner, he suddenly seemed apprehensive, pointed at it and asked "What is that?", to which the mother replied, " It’s a television", then proceeded to turn it on. The visitor then quite excitedly said "That’s a communicator! Turn it off!"
“During the course of the remaining conversation, (which was curiously dotted with Biblical quotations) the witness’ mother made a remark about UFOs and said that if they were coming here to harm us, perhaps we should arm ourselves, and shoot at them first. Upon hearing this remark, the visitor became quite upset and said "You could never harm us, we could destroy your world in the blink of an eye, and would not hesitate to do so!" All this time the visitor kept checking his watch, reported as being ‘very fancy’ and on the right hand, then suddenly stood up and said "I must leave now, but may I come back again?" R.W. and his parents replied in the affirmative. He then went to the door, and when the witness and family extended their hands to shake his hand, he did not accept, but simply raised his right hand and walked out the door. Immediately after closing the door, they looked out the front window, but the visitor was nowhere to be seen.”
“They noticed that Roy was wearing a very unusual watch. Touching his arm, Roy said the visitor’s hand was cold and clammy. They asked where he had found it and when, plus additional questions as to the state of the field. On being told a metal detector had been used in locating it six inches below the ground and discovering the watch was still going, they questioned what a metal detector was!”
“They were wearing gray suits with black shirts, one had a white tie, and the other was buttoned up to the neck. The one with the tie had a clip that contained a red "stone" that flickered. Mr. Samuel had a ruby ring surrounded with diamonds. His watch was square but without apparent hands, instead being encircled with buttons that periodically illuminated from white to green to mauve. The strap appeared to be molded into skin and was a solid steel band. The belt on his pants was of metallic strips with a square buckle.”
“A man appeared at Roy's door, stating that he had come to see the watch. During the past month Roy had a call from a person who claimed his colleagues, (the two men in gray?) had told him about having seen Roy's unusual watch.”
I know what “Sgt. Major” means, but what does F/L mean?

... the interviewer was not a “Sgt. Major” but was in fact a F/L. .
I believe that there are people with pale skin and lanky builds, and maybe some of them wear sunglasses indoors. I also wouldn't be a bit surprised if some government or intelligence agents follow up on UFO reports though a lot of the time I think the people following up are UFOlogists or UFO investigators.
This visitor appeared to have shared many traits common to the Men In Black, known as MIBs, an acronym popularized by writer John A. Keel. Physical traits including pale skin, dark sunglasses worn indoors, and lanky builds are commonly reported, as well as behavioral traits including strange eating behaviors and unusual speech patterns. Next post coming up, standby...
They never came back to pay him the other $250?

Government agents are known to pay what they need, within reason, to get what they need, but it seems like a lot of trouble to go through over a marcasite mid-century timepiece—sending multiple oddly-dressed agents over and paying $250.
