Sounds fanciful? Well it actually happened. In February 1977 in the remote coastal village of Broad Haven.
It was a Friday afternoon when headmaster Ralph Llewellyn realised something was wrong. His pupils had a story to tell. About a silver, cigar shaped craft that they had seen on the ground in the field behind their school.
At first the headmaster dismissed the tale, but when the kids reported what they had seen to the police, Ralph Llewellyn decided to separate them and, under exam conditions, had them draw what they had seen.
Their drawings matched. So did many of their stories.
David John Davies (10): said that they were standing at the top end of the school playing field watching a bush where the object was sighted. Philip (Rees) was trying to get a close look when up from the bush popped a cigar-shaped object. It was silvery, bright and humming. It seemed to be tugging . Then we all ran. The time was around 3.35pm as they had just finished school.
Philip James Rees (10) stated that he saw silvery object at ground level around 1.30pm after school dinner and was still there when he went back into school at 2.00pm. “My friends and I asked the headmaster to have a look at the object, but he refused. A couple of my friends saw movement of a figure, but I did not. I was frightened. Two friends, Tudor and David, were very frightened.”
Micheal Mathieson Webb (11) : “It was silver and a cigar shape with a big dome and a red light flashing on top.”
After that, all manner of peculiar happenings descended upon the village of Broad Haven. Polterguiest disturbances, UFO sightings, and giant silver suited entities peering in through farmhouse windows.
The mystery of The Watchers had begun.
