The Berwyn Roswell Incident

In January 1974 near Bala in Mid-Wales there were lights flashing in the sky followed by earth tremors and a loud bang. Within hours the armed forces and ‘men in black’ arrived, but the military has always denied that a UFO crashed. However rumours of alien bodies being recovered still persist.

The philatelic interest lies in the use of MOD £1 revenue stamps on military communications, and a souvenir label.
