9 AUGUST 1909 - MERTHYR MOUNTAIN
ANOTHER AIRSHIP SCARE
WHAT CWMDARE PEOPLE SAW
Three persons in Cwmdare declare that they saw an airship last Monday morning. Mr. Evan John Evans, milk vendor, one of the three persons referred to, was milking his cows in Gamblyn field at 7 o'clock that morning, when he perceived an object descend on the Merthyr mountain and rise again very quickly. It was cigar-like in shape, similar in the one seen on Caerphilly mountain.
He also saw a person inside, dressed in black. The airship went in the direction of Merthyr. Mr. Evans' son and daughter, who were with him, also testify to seeing it.
