Lee first got in touch with BUFOG on 20th February 2012 to report a sighting of a glowing white orb which he and his wife had witnessed at their home in Rednal, Longbridge. After getting back to him it soon became clear that he had also had many other interesting experiences over the years, some of which suggested that he may even be a contactee. I arranged to visit him and his wife in person to talk face-to-face about his experiences. Several days later I drove out to Rednal and we spent a number of hours covering everything which had taken place. This report provides an overview of many of Lee’s experiences which appear to be UFO or contact related.

Childhood Fears

From about the age of 4 throughout his childhood Lee was frightened of going off to sleep in his bedroom at night. He would only be able to drop off if all the covers were pulled up around him, leaving just a small hole for breathing through. He has no recollection of anything specific taking place around this time which could have been responsible for these feelings.

It is of course quite common for young children to get a fear of the dark in their room. However I feel this is worth mentioning as this is one of the common side effects f contact that contactees report time and time again. When speaking in terms of contact, it is likely that these emotions are brought on by the fact that the individual knows this is when the ETs have come for them. Perhaps Lee had an early experience which has currently been blanked from his mind.

Back in the 1960’s parents would often be far less concerned about their children being outside on their own. Lee’s parents used to allow him to walk to and from his school in Cotteridge, even when it was dark due to the time of year. This journey would always take him through Cotteridge Park. He had no worries at all about walking this route on a daily basis.

From age 6 Lee began to experience a recurring nightmare. In this dream he would be walking through the park when suddenly a pack of wolves would appear behind him and begin to give chase. He would try to run away but his legs would not work properly and he would not move fast enough. When the wolves caught up with him the dream would end.

Later on the dream changed, and instead of a pack of wolves he would see a large jester/joker face which would float towards him. This was reminiscent of Punch off a Punch and Judy show, wearing a hat with bells on.

This particular dream is quite intriguing. The ETs will sometimes disguise themselves using something referred to as a screen memory to mask their true appearance. They are often known to appear in a different form, especially to children. They usually appear as something familiar to the individual such as a family member, friend, pet, other animal or something else which the individual would recognise. I have heard of contact cases where these beings have appeared in the form of wolves/dogs, and other cases where they have appeared as clowns, possibly in an attempt to appear less frightening. However this sometimes has the opposite effect and the individual can get a lasting phobia as a result.

Due to the open location involved I do wonder if Lee has had a contact experience here in the park, perhaps while walking too or from school on his own, an experience which led to these recurring nightmares. This would just be speculation and this may not have occurred, but I felt it was worth mentioning due to the possible links described above.

Night Time Visitation

When Lee was 5 years he lived with his parents and grandmother. Unfortunately around this time his father suffered from a heart attack. He survived this but afterwards was consigned to the living room of his home and used to sleep downstairs. Lee would often play cards with his father in the evening just before bed. One evening he could hear that his father was not breathing very well. His father ended the game and told him to go up to bed.

During the night Lee awoke with the feeling of being poked in his back a couple of times. Behind him was just the bedroom wall. He then heard a voice say to him “Come on Lee, wake up. You know who it is”.  The voice did not appear to come from any particular location in the room, he just heard it directly inside his head. He questioned the voice, asking himself “Do I know who it is? Who would be saying that?”

The next thing he was aware of, he was standing at the top of the staircase looking downwards. He could see some other men wheeling his father out in a wheelchair. His father was wearing a face mask, and Lee could see his mother waving them off. He was also aware of two figures standing either side of him holding his hands. One was holding his hand quite softly, where as the other had quite a firm grip. They appeared to be only slightly taller than himself, so would have been around 4 feet in height.  He also remembers these figures speaking to him saying something similar to “You need to see this. This is the last time you are ever going to see him.”

Suddenly the view switched and he remembers moving towards his closed bedroom door and passing straight through it. He is not aware whether the figures were still there alongside him when this happened. He not only remembers the sight of this taking place, but also how it actually felt. This was all he could remember when he awoke the following morning.

He went downstairs and found his mother crying and being comforted by his grandmother. He was immediately told that his father had died during the night. At hearing this dreadful news, Lee felt emotionally numb and went back upstairs. He felt like the experience during the night had “buffered” the impact of what had happened.

Later on he spoke with his mother about what had taken place, and what she described matched what he had seen. He is absolutely convinced that he had been woken up on purpose to see his father for the last time.

There are a number of aspects of this experience which certainly fit in with a visitation by ETs. Numerous contactees have reported being woke up by the beings prodding them, or described such feelings during abduction experiences. There are missing time elements to this experience, such as how Lee got from his bed to the top of the stairs. This is very common with contact, and the contactee will more often than not remember fragmented memories of what has taken place.

The beings that Lee describes either side of him are very intriguing. Although he did not turn to look at them, he was aware that they were short in height, certainly much shorter than an adult human would be. This would fit in with the figures being Greys; the most commonly reported type of ET. In addition to this Lee says that when they spoke to him he would hear the words inside his head, it did not sound like the beings were actually audibly speaking. This again would fit in with Greys, which always talk via telepathic means.

Lastly Lee then recalls actually passing through his bedroom door. This is again another common aspect of abduction experiences that take place at home. The individual is often taken through solid objects by the ETs, such as the window, wall or ceiling. I have had numerous contactees describe how this actually feels. It appears that the beings use advanced technology of some kind which allows this to take place.

Because of all the above stated reasons, I feel it is certainly possible that Lee was visited by two  ETs during that night, and for whatever reason they wanted him to see his father depart for the last time, maybe to lessen the impact of his father’s death, or provide him with a lasting memory. As he did not actually look at the beings, or did but had the memory of this removed, we cannot say for certain that this is what took place, but there are many aspects which seem to back up this theory.

If this was a visitation, as it appears to be, then the fact that the beings first said to Lee “You know who this is” suggests that he had previously had other experiences with these same entities. This perhaps lends weight to the unusual dreams that he had experienced for the previous two years. However the dreams appeared to be quite frightening, where as there was no fear involved with this experience. Lee felt quite comfortable with the situation he found himself in.

Something In The Sky

The next unusual incident which Lee can recall happening took place in 1971/72 when he was a teenager. His memory of what took place is quite blurred but he remembers leaving the house to go and meet up with a friend. It was a bright sunny day. He was walking towards Cotteridge when he suddenly noticed a big group of people all staring up into the air and pointing. The traffic also appeared to be stopped. He walked on over to see what they were looking at, but when he looked up into the sky he couldn't see anything.

He then remembers looking back down and seeing a tough looking boy walk across the road towards him. He then felt himself get hit and he blacked out. When he came round he was lying on the ground surrounded by a number of adults. He remembers them helping him to his feet and asking if he was ok.

His next memory was of being about a mile away in Kings Norton walking along the edge of the road. He felt extremely confused and could not fathom how he had got to the location he was now at. It has played on his mind ever since.

There are a number of unanswered questions surrounding this incident. What were the people all staring at in the sky? Why had the other boy suddenly decided to walk over to Lee and then knock him out? And how had he got from that position to walking through Kings Norton? It is possible that the other boy was just nasty, or maybe thought that Lee was someone else. It is probable that the missing period of time was down to concussion from being knocked out, and that Lee had walked a mile in a daze. However what everyone was looking at remains completely unanswered.

Interests and Dreams

In his late teens, Lee suddenly developed an obsession with the UFO subject. He began purchasing many books and reading as much as he could about everything. He does not really know where this sudden interest in the subject came from, as he had not really paid much attention to it prior to this point.

Around the same time period, he also began to have regular dreams about UFOs. He cannot really remember whether the dreams came first or whether they came after he had began looking into everything.

In some of these dreams he would be visited by small ET beings. These beings would be semi-translucent and inside them Lee saw some kind of electrical energy. In other dreams the skies would be filled with craft and he was struggling to survive alongside others against a hostile invasion force.

Witness drawing of one of the short semi-translucent beings:

Throughout his life, right up to present day, Lee has also had a number of precognitive dreams. In these dreams he sees random things, and it is only when they happen for real soon afterwards that he realises they have been future predictions. While some of them have been quite random, others have been very specific and clearly of real life incidents. They have included deaths of prominent figures. He has also had dreams of accidents from time to time. As an example, in his early 20s Lee used to work at Cadburys, and every day would walk to and from work along Lyndon Road. One night he had a dream in which a car crashed on the road and flipped over upside down ending up in a garden. Three days later that exact thing took place, and he realised he had previously dreamt of it.

The dreams that Lee had about UFOs and beings did not seem to relate to any known real life incidents. Therefore it is possible that they were simply a side effect of his obsessive research into the subject. However the precognitive dreams that Lee continues to have are much more interesting. Many contactees report having precognitive abilities, and I have investigated other cases where people have reported exactly the same thing. Just as with Lee’s dreams, these tend to usually be completely random events. The fact that Lee has mentioned having such dreams is certainly significant and worthy of mention.

He also regularly experiences night terrors, where he wakes up in the middle of the night absolutely terrified.  Sometimes he will see black shapes moving around in front of him, and when he opens his eyes they are still there for a brief moment. Other times he will shout out and punch out at something unknown in front of him until his wife manages to wake him up. While it is of course possible for these to just be bad dreams and hallucinations brought on by waking suddenly from dreams, again they may have links with contact so should not be ignored.

Tired of UFOs

In recent years Lee has looked into the UFO subject and realised the links that some of his experiences have had with it. However he says that whenever he starts looking up information on the subject, or even talking about it, he begins to feel extremely fatigued. He has noted that this only happens with this subject, if he is checking out anything else in depth he does not experience these feelings. You could suggest that this was just down to boredom; however this would not be correct at all, because Lee is very interested in the subject.

Contactees often report experiencing unusual emotions of one kind or another when looking at information relating to UFOs or ETs. Sometimes they get obsessed with the subject, as mentioned previously in this report. Other times they get an extreme aversion to it, especially pictures of the beings themselves. This is completely understandable as it will sometimes bring back the feelings of fear or panic that they have gone through during their experiences. Perhaps the feelings of tiredness that Lee experiences is something trying to stop him from looking into the subject, or maybe an over familiarity with it. These are just speculations, nothing more.
