Lee Brickley: One of the more famous UFO cases associated with Cannock Chase happened in the spring of 1964, and involved an unidentified craft that reportedly blew up in the skies over mainland Europe. A small part of the craft landed in West Germany and another much larger part landed close to the small town of Penkridge. It is alleged that three bodies were recovered from the crash site at Cocksparrow Lane by both RAF and NATO intelligence services.

Did you know that 'cocksparrow' means a c*** and bull story/bull****/lies/rubbish, just saying.

Where it states "For official use only" - gently rub a white wax candle over the area indicated.

I had never heard of that word before, so I got to looking what a 'cocksparrow' is.

I found these:

http://oxforddiction...sh/cock-sparrow

http://en.wiktionary...ki/cock-sparrow

http://www.merriam-w...ry/cock sparrow



http://www.urbandict...rm=cock sparrow

http://www.collinsdi...sh/cock-sparrow

From what I gather it seems to be a term of endearment; though, I can see how it would be capable of possessing two different meanings and well possibly more!

Words are awesome...aren't they?

:clap:

Oh yes, to add: The video is cringe-worthy kinda. I mean, I was never good at understanding drunken slurrs. Feel free to translate and let me know! Private messages are acceptable!

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.

The Wee c*** Sparra

A wee c*** sparra sat on a tree,

A wee c*** sparra sat on a tree,

A wee c*** sparra sat on a tree,

Chirpin awa as blithe as could be.

Alang came a boy wi'a bow and an arra,

Alang came a boy wi'a bow and an arra,

And he said: 'I'll get ye, ye wee c*** sparra.'

The boy wi' the arra let fly at the sparra,

The boy wi' the arra let fly at the sparra,

And he hit a man that was hurlin' a barra.

The man wi' the barra cam owre wi' the arra,

The man wi' the barra cam owre wi' the arra,

And said: 'Ye take me for a wee c*** sparra?'

The man hit the boy, tho he wasne his farra,

The man hit the boy, tho he wasne his farra.

And the boy stood and glowered; he was hurt tae the marra.

And a' this time the wee c*** sparra,

And a' this time the wee c*** sparra,

Was chirpin awa on the shank o' the barra.

:)


Meaning of unusual words:
arra=arrow
sparra=sparrow
barra=barrow
farra=father
marra=marrow
shank=leg

I have lived in Cannock my whole life and once lived on the border of the chase and never saw anything :( being the second hottest spot for UFO sightings naturally I'm disappointed. Whether its the trees playing tricks, or the various ocular malformities caused by a population open to inbreeding, their has been many a sighting of strange goings on in the chase. Whether this is ture I'm unsure, as this account is quite dubious (and coxsparrow lane is a very tight lane of only about 50 meters, so quite a precise landing if there ever was one).  Let us not forget the tale of the man who talk his dog for a walk near the chase and saw a dinosaur (diplodicus, apparently) although he was blind in one eye, he was sure he saw it...

...if its been seen near the chase, its probably not real...

It's really too bad that his film was confiscated, I would really love to have seen these photos. I've read that Britain has there fair share of sightings, evidence and abductions. I do not underestimate the British government's ability to deal with UFO's much in the same way the good o'l USA does.
