And here we enter another aspect of confusion, because I know exactly what you mean.Except of course Halt wasn't at the fuel pumps in Woodbridge on the night of the UFO, he was out in the forest. Doesn't sound like the same incident, if it happened at all.
Going back over this old case documentation, there's certainly a significant, overall clarification in the following two lectures given by Halt.
If these extracts might help:
Quest International Conference
Leeds, 31 July, 1994
Lieutenant Englund came in, about 8 o'clock...
He said, ‘Somebody saw some lights at the East Gate again and he went out to take a look.’ He took several lightalls out. Lightalls are motor generators, on trailers. They’re small gasoline engines, something a little larger than a lawn mower engine, directly coupled to a generator, with two big adjustable lights on top. You can bathe an area with light from them. We use them for security; we use them for maintenance people to work at night, any time we need a lot of illumination, we use them.
The Security Police had about a dozen assigned directly to them. They’re almost foolproof. If there’s a problem, someone would go out and put the fuel in, normally petrol. He said, ‘The lightalls wouldn't work. We got starlight scopes out.'
Starlight scopes are first generation image intensifiers. They would magnify available light by 25 or 30 thousand times. Now if there was some problem and we had to have some type of available light, you couldn't use them in total darkness. Just starlight or moonlight was enough to use them. And you looked through like a telescope. They would tell us a bearing with a ...[unclear]... , a yellow green light. You could clearly see an outline, you could clearly see people and you could differentiate things. We used them on the flightlines in sensitive areas whenever the power went off. They gave us time until the generators came on. We had many of these, they were useful, for watching an area. He said they looked into the forest to the area where this incident was supposed to have took place, or it crashed or supposedly landed. You could see a dull glow'.
We hopped in the Jeep, we drove across Bentwaters base and out the Back Gate of Bentwaters towards the base at Woodbridge, onto the forest service road. We cut down the forest service road, and I could see a lot of activity down there in the forest. I could see some vehicles, I could see there were some people.
We turned in and went down there. They were still playing with some lightalls. They couldn't get the lightalls to work, and they were arguing whether they did or didn’t have fuel, so I verified, yes they had fuel. So I said, it’s simple, send back get another lightall, and we waited there a couple of minutes and got a little bit bored.
In the meantime, Lt. Englund said to me, ‘Take a look through the starlight scope. Look right out there.’ So I looked out into the starlight scope and saw there was a dull glow. It was brighter in that area than it was anywhere else. I don’t know if it was significant or not. Anyhow we took a look though the starlight scope for several minutes. We all took turns to look through it. We decided one of the four of us should walk toward it. We were getting cold and tired, waiting around for ... [unclear, possibly ‘ten, twelve’]... minutes. So I ask Sgt. Nevels to take a reading with the ANP-27, and he says normal background radiation. He pokes around a little bit. It has a long wire with a probe on it, some thick wire this with a headset.
We drove halfway into the supposed area and I help take a couple more readings, nothing of great significance. We did ...[unclear]... Lt. Englund said, ‘There’s the stake that marks the spot.’, so we didn’t walk all over it. And fine we go and take a look see these indentations".
Now this time frame started around 10:30, 11 o'clock at night and went on until alter 4 o'clock in the morning. The object was still in the sky at 4 o'clock in the morning. We were exhausted, we had been up all day - I had been up since 9 o'clock in the morning - through a great deal of emotional stress.
Tired, hungry, we were wet ...[unclear]... we were still upset about the whole thing that happened that evening. So we went back up towards where the lightalls were. They were still playing with the lightalls. I said, ‘Pack it in, and gather them up, let’s take everything back to the base.’.
Seminar at St George’s Community College, August 1997
What’s back, Bruce?’ He said ‘The UFO’s back.’.
I said ‘How do you know that?’. He said ‘I’ve seen something.’
I said ‘Where?’ and he said ‘Outside the East Gate in the woods.’.
So what are you doing out in the woods in the East Gate? Keep in mind in England, that is a foreign country as far as we’re concerned. We’re guests there, and our mission was not to patrol the woods, it was to maintain the perimeter of the Base.
He said ‘We saw, some of the guys saw something out there so we sent a patrol out there. We took some light-alls out.’.
Light-alls, the NF2 light-alls were motor-generators. They were nothing but a small, I think a five horsepower Briggs and Stratton engine with a couple of big mercury vapor lights on top, and a gas tank, and a lot of sheet metal.
‘The lights wouldn’t work. The radios were acting up. And when we looked in the woods with a starlight scope we saw some strange things.’.
‘What did you see?’.
‘Well, we saw a glow, and some red lights.’.
Then we bundled into the jeep, drove across the flight line. The two bases are about a mile and a half apart. A little closer if you drive right across the flight line and in the back gate.
We unlocked the back gate and drove across, and got over to what, what’s known as the East Gate at Woodbridge. And lo and behold, there’s a crowd out there. Well, I was quite concerned.
So I said to ‘em ‘Let’s keep all these people back. We don’t need the publicity. We, we’re kind of trespassin’ if you will. This is the Queen’s forest – sort of like a National Forest here. And there’s a lot of private property around here. We don’t want to cause a lot of concern. We don’t want to get people upset. They’re going to wonder what we’re doing stomping around out here in the woods. So he said ‘OK’.
Probably 30 or 40 people, total. Three or four light-alls. The light-alls were acting up. They wouldn’t run right. They were flickering off and on. I could here comments ‘He didn’t refuel them’ and somebody else said ‘Yes, I did refuel them. I took them down to the motor pool before we brought them out.’.
So. Bruce says ‘Let’s look into the woods there.’. And he had a first generation starlight scope. We looked into the woods, and sure enough in one area there was a, a dull glow. When you look through a starlight scope you don’t see things as you normally would. It’s a greenish-yellow tinge to them. It’s a different spectrum, or different, uh, frequency.
And there was something I could see in there, but I wasn’t really sure what it was. It didn’t make a lot of sense to me. And I’m not sure it’s of great significance, but there was something.
