Mistakes were made
May 29 – June 2, 1947
What does this have to do with Roswell? For those who think the RAAF press release was a prank, hoax, or “mistake”, well, here’s another one from the summer of 1947, and how the army actually responded to army officers and men causing it public embarrassment. I haven’t gotten the for-pay articles that describe their fates, but the headlines read “Five Are Penalized For ‘Sea Monster’ Hoax”, and “Tokyo Radio Hoaxers Face Exile in Korea”.
Compare theirs to the fates of Haut, Blanchard and Marcel.
