NOVEMBER 1965, NORTON BRAVANT, WILTSHIRE, U-K., A MAN AND HIS WIFE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Ken Rogers, author of a book on the Warminster "thing", reportedly told that near Norton Bravant, U-K., on November 1965, at 01:30 a.m., a retired RAF group captain and his wife were returning to their home near Warminster when their car headlights illuminated a tall form walking alongside the road.

It was dressed in black clothing, wearing "a hooded sort of hat or balaclava helmet." Both had the impression that the figure wore a black mask that covered his features, except for the nose.

Suddenly on the opposite side of the road, seconds later, they caught sight of a "figure staggering over a hedge by the roadside." It was described as a youth, who was stark naked, apart form a jacket of sorts. He looked as though he had been roughed up considerably, or had been involved in a serious accident.

The couple after natural hesitation turned the car and stopped at the scene. Both the youth and the figure in black had disappeared.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near Norton Bravant, England, on November 1965, at 0130 a.m., a retired RAF group captain and his wife were returning to their home near Warminster when their car headlights illuminated a tall form walking alongside the road. It was dressed in black clothing, wearing "a hooded sort of hat or balaclava helmet." Both had the impression that the figure wore a black mask that covered his features, except for the nose. Suddenly on the opposite side of the road, seconds later, they caught sight of a "figure staggering over a hedge by the roadside." It was described as a youth, who was stark naked, apart form a jacket of sorts. He looked as though he had been roughed up considerably, or had been involved in a serious accident. The couple after natural hesitation turned the car and stopped at the scene. Both the youth and the figure in black had disappeared.

Albert Rosales indicates as source Ken Rogers, The Warminster Triangle.

Points to consider:

The couple apparently reported two men. No UFO is involved and there seems to be no real strangeness in the encounter. Because of the "Warminster Thing" craze at the time, with the heavy publicity given to all sorts of events even not particularly significant by journalist and "contactee" Arthur Shuttlewood, such events were noted down, sometimes exagerated towards the fantastic, and then appeared as ufological cases even when no investigation or checking took place and when there was no strangeness to it.
