Joseph Seymour has been a member of BUFOG for a number of years now. He has had numerous fascinating experiences throughout his life since childhood. After keeping these experiences largely to himself for many years he has finally decided that it is time to get them documented and shared with the UFO community, to help further understanding of the contact phenomenon as well as help others going through simlar experiences. This report documents these incidents in approximate age order.
Joseph was born in Battersea, London but in 1968 his family moved to Aylsham in Norfolk as his father got a job in the area. He shared a house on Sir Williams Close with his parents Steve and Patricia and two older sisters Jemma and Kerry. It was quite a rural location and only 5 miles away from RAF Coltishal (which is no longer active).
It was a day in 1969 when he was 4 or 5 years old. He was playing at the base of the staircase. His mother was upstairs at the time. He happened to glance up the stairs. Standing at the top of the stairs he saw a short troll-like creature. It was humanoid in shape but only about 2.5 feet tall. The figure looked like a wrinkled old man with tan brown coloured skin. He had facial hair and scrappy looking hair, and was wearing a brown coloured tunic. He was leaning forward in a slouching position.
Joseph watched as the creature wandered into his sister’s bedroom, then back out and into his parent’s bedroom. He then heard his mother Patricia let out a scream! He was too frightened to go upstairs to find out what was going on. Patricia did not run downstairs. When he saw her later on he does not remember speaking with her about it, however he does remember being scared to go upstairs for a number of days.
Soon after, possibly within the same month, Joseph saw the creature a second time. He was walking upstairs to use the toilet. He suddenly heard a number of footsteps on the floor and watched the creature emerge from his sister’s bedroom onto the landing. It walked along the landing ignoring him completely and entered his parent’s room just like before. This time he noticed a strong smell of sulphur coming from the creature. He turned and ran back downstairs. He did not discuss what happened with his family as he did not think they would believe him.
Around 2008 ago Joseph recalls bringing up the first incident with Patricia in conversation but she could not remember anything taking place. If Joseph had only seen the creature once then it may have been possible it was just one of his sisters dressed up and playing a prank on his mother, or even his young imagination. However the fact that he saw it on two separate occasions suggests that it was a real being or entity of some kind. If so what could it have been? Numerous contactees have reported seeing very short dwarf-like creatures before, sometimes at the same time as other ETs. Could this have been one of these beings? Or perhaps it was a ghostly apparition of some kind, which may be why it walked the same path twice and appeared not to notice his presence.
The Bouncing Orb
In his childhood Joseph would regularly play with his friends around a World War II pill box at a local recreation ground situated alongside Sir Williams Close. The pill box was at the edge of a large ploughed field which has now been converted into a housing estate.
