Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates that in St. Merryn, Cornwall, England, in 1910, at an unknown time, two witnesses saw a red object resembling a ship among the clouds, the object contained a large number of little dwarf-like creatures that were chattering, laughing, and pointing down at the witnesses.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Janet and Colin Bord, Modern Mysteries of Britain.

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website says that in 1910 in Saint Merryn, Cornwall, UK, "Two witnesses saw a red object resembling a ship among the clouds, the object contained a large number of little dwarf-like creatures that were chattering, laughing, and pointing down at the witnesses."

[Ref. js1:] JEAN SIDER:

The author indicates that in 1910 in St. Merryn, Cornwall, England, there was a CE3, when two people saw a red object, a kind of airship floating among the clouds. It contained many small men similar to dwarves occupied to chatter, laugh and point the witnesses with their fingers.

Jean Sider says his source is Rosales, from Janet and Colin Bord in "Modern Mysteries of Britain."

He comments on that English pixies on board an airhip, in other words, fairies in a UFO, "why not?"

Points to consider:

Count Zeppelin's air transport company DELAG, between 1910 and 1914 made 1500 commercial airships flights without incident, carrying some 34,000 passengers. The French ASTRA company, and others, also flew airship in Europe. The British had the Nulli Secundus and Beta dirigibles. However, they were probably never red as far as I know, and they could not carry "many" men.

Maybe this was a "UFO with pixies on board", maybe this is just the distorted report of two persons seeing a dirigible airhsip the first time in their lives, maybe this is invented entirely. No evidence, no investigation, no data... no certainty.
