The Rendlesham Forest UFO case has taken on the mantle of the "British Roswell", but in truth it is a far more significant event than Roswell. There isn't any other UFO case anywhere , which can boast up on such a large number of apparently highly credible witnesses on two separate nights, or such a wide variety of supporting evidence including supposed physical traces, an official memo confirming the events written by a high-ranking USAF officer, a report by local police officers who were called to the scene on two separate occasions, a real-time tape recording made during the second night of the sighting by the same USAF officer, and written statements made by the witnesses to the first night's events. Yet much of the popular discussion of the case has centered , not on the well-substantiated primary evidence mentioned above, but instead on various tales of doubtful provenance, some from individuals not directly involved, that emerged many years later once the Rendlesham mythology had become well-entrenched.
