UFO Drawings From The National Archive
By David Clarke
'Originally set up after a request from Winston Churchill, the Ministry of Defence’s UFO Desk ran for over 60 years, collating mysterious sightings and records of strange objects in the sky from observant members of the public. As well as letters and official reports, the UFO files contain photographs, drawings and even paintings of these curious sightings.
David Clarke has selected examples from The National Archives to present a history of British UFO art and the remarkable stories behind these images, including an alien craft on the A1, flying saucers over Hampstead, and a spaceship landing at a primary school in Macclesfield.'
UFO Drawings From The National Archives is part of the Four Corners Irregulars, a series about modern British visual history.
