1965, POOLE, DORSET, U-K., TERRENCE DRUCE, BRODERICK DRUCE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

In a 1972 special issue of the Flying Saucer Review, Leslie Harris reportedly told that in Poole, Dorset, England, in 1965, at night, a 7-year old boy, Terrence Druce, awoke one night to see a triangular shaped entity, about 4 feet in height, standing at the foot of his bed.

It was composed of closely fitting triangles of many colors, and had thin black arms ending in crab-like pincers. The boy screamed and woke his brother Broderick, 6, who also saw the figure for a moment before it disappeared.

The next day, the two brothers were returning home across a parking lot when they again saw a triangular entity, standing next to a parked car, it reached about half way up the window of the car, approximately 4 feet. This time it was completely black, and the younger boy saw a nose or "beak" that jutted out near the apex.

When they fled in fright, the figure turned as if to watch them.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Poole, Dorset, England, in 1965, at night, a 7-year old boy, Terrence Druce, awoke one night to see a triangular shaped entity, about 4 ft in height, standing at the foot of his bed. It was composed of closely fitting triangles of many colors, and had thin black arms ending in crab-like pincers. The boy screamed and woke his brother, who also saw the figure for a moment before it disappeared.

Albert Rosales also indicates in his catalogue that still in Poole Dorset, England, in 1965, in daytime, the day following the previous incident, the two brothers, Terrence and Broderick Druce 6, were returning home across a parking lot when they again saw a triangular entity, standing next to a parked car, it reached about half way up the window of the car (approximately 4 ft). This time it was completely black, and the younger boy saw a nose or "beak" that jutted out near the apex. When they fled in fright, the figure turned as if to watch them.
