One of the most frequently repeated stories of Mysterious disapearences conerns 267 soldiers from the Royal Norfolk Regiment - Who were alledgedly abducted by a UFO in 1915

The incident alledgedly took places in August 1915 during the ill-fated Gallapoli campaign. According to statement made by three of the original witnesses, 22 members of a New Zealand field company saw a large number of British soldiers, later identified as the First-Fourth Norfolk Regiment, MArch into a strange loaf of bread shaped cloud that was straddling a dry creek bed. After the last man had entered, the cloud lifted and moved off against the wind. Not one of the soldiers was ever seen again

The New Zealanders story contained obvious errors, However the First Fourth Norfolk was not a regiment but a battalion of the Royal Norfolk Regiment. Yet none of the erros have ever been corrected in any of the books that feature the story, Which suggests that it has never been substantiated, Authers simply having copied the myth from one another.

this opinion is supported by one further and very important fact: The First-Fourth Noroflk did not disappear from Gallipoli in August 1915, nor at any time or place thereafter> Indeed there is ample evidence to show that they were in active service until the end of the year, when they were withdrawn from Gallipoli and sent to another theatre of war. This fact would be sufficient to dispose of the New Zealnders story of cosmic abduction as a figment of someones imagination; but perhaps coincidentally, it is a matter of undisputed historical fact that another battalion of the Royal Norfolk Regiment, the First-Fifth, DID disappear at Gallipoli in August 1915, their fate never having been satisfactorily ascertained. SO, if the new zealanders dad see any Norfolks abducted, it could have only been the First-Fifth. Is it possible that, Bizarre though their story most certainly is, the members of this Nez Zealand company did witness the fate of the First-Fifth Norfolk? If they did not, where did their story come from and what was the fate of the First-Fifth Battalion?

Damara, after reading this post I searched for other mysterious disappearances of people.
I totally got side tracked reading up on other stories of unexplained disappearances.

Thanks for the article.
