• In the winter of 1922/23, five years after the end of World War I, scores of villagers in Burton Dassett, Warwickshire, England saw “multi-coloured” lights floating over the nearby hills. This was reported in the local Banbury Guardian newspaper in February 1923.

• Mysterious lights believed to be the festive ghosts of World War I soldiers were in fact aliens, a police detective has claimed. Amateur UFO researcher Richard Rokeby says that, “Following the First World War desperate families wanted to believe that there is a hope of communicating with their lost sons again. Therefore, it would be natural at this time to assign any strange phenomena to ghosts and spirits.” The local authorities attributed the bright orbs moving over the hills as ‘marsh gas’ or ‘Will O’ the Wisps’.

• In his book: The Lights Upon The Hills, Rokeby writes: “[I]f we look at these events through modern eyes, it is very clear that what they are witnessing is an historic Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon event,” where the phenomenon seen were actually extraterrestrial craft. Rokeby notes that explanations that the orbs were simply ‘marsh gas’ is not credible because the lights reportedly spooked horses and exerted “downward pressure”.

• “What we have here is multiple witnesses saying that they saw strange lights in the sky and above the ground moving in ways that modern aircraft find very difficult to do today,” writes Rokeby. “I firmly believed that what was actually being witnessed here was a mass …multi-witnessed, extraterrestrial encounter and that these encounters may have been happening for hundreds years, are still happening today and perhaps a large event is going to occur there again and very soon!”

• Top British flying saucer investigator Philip Mantle, who published Rokeby’s book, said: “The story of these sightings in 1923 is so unique that I simply had to publish it. …I personally have been involved in UFO research for over 40 years and it never ceases to amaze me, especially when cases like this land on my desk.”

Scores of villagers started to see spooky orbs floating over hills near Burton Dassett, Warwickshire, in December 1922.

The sightings were attributed to a natural phenomenon known as marsh gas or Will O’ the Wisps by a local newspaper.

But amateur UFO researcher Richard Rokeby has penned a book, The Lights Upon The Hills, where he claims the witness accounts show they were actually ETs.

The married dad-of-three wrote: “Following the First World War desperate families wanted to believe that there is a hope of communicating with their lost sons again.

“Therefore, it would be natural at this time to assign any strange phenomena to ghosts and spirits.

“But as we will see if we look at these events through modern eyes, it is very clear that what they are witnessing is an historic Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon event.”

He told of how several sightings of “multi-coloured” lights moving at speed were reported by the Banbury Guardian in February 1923.

And insisted the paper’s explanation was not “credible” as the lights reportedly spooked horses and exerted “downward pressure”.

The author wrote: “What we have here is multiple witnesses saying that they saw strange lights in the sky and above the ground moving in ways that modern aircraft find very difficult to do today.

“I firmly believed that what was actually being witnessed here was a mass Unidentified Flying Object ( UFO) or Unexplained Aerial Phenomena (UAP) event.

“Therefore, over the course of this book I hope to show that what was seen in the winter of 1922-23 was not ghosts or marsh gas, but was in fact a well documented, multi-witnessed, extraterrestrial encounter and that these encounters may have been happening for hundreds years, are still happening today and perhaps a large event is going to occur there again and very soon!”
