Koi Alien Photo 20

Koi Alien Photo 20 appears on several UFO websites, including one (thebiggestsecretpict.online.fr) which gives this photo a file indicating it supposedly relates to a Greada meeting in 1954 and a caption which states : "Fake Greada meeting.  A photo montage. Notice how nobody seems to notice the ET and how the lighting on the latter is different than that on the others". 

While the image appears on some other UFO websites without any explanation as to its source, this image was created by altering a photograph taken in London in 1944 showing the Allied invasion planners. The original version of the photograph appears on various websites and is shown below (labelled "koi_ap_20_c").

1. The relevant image

 

 

2. Stories and claims relating to this image

Many UFO websites publish photographs of "aliens" with little, if any, accompanying text.

 

3. The real background to this image

 

Koi Alien Photo 20 is in fact a manipulated image.  The original photograph can, with a little bit of effort, be found on various websites.

The original photograph was taken on 1 January 1944 at Southwick House, London, England.  It shows the Allied invasion planners, i.e. (from left to right): General Bradley, Admiral Ramsay, Air Chief Marshal Tedder, General Eisenhower, General Montgomery, Air Chief Marshal Leigh Mallory, and General Smith".

Thus, Admiral Ramsay has been replaced with an "alien" in Koi Alien Photo 20.

The original image (shown below, labelled "koi_ap_20_c") can be found on various websites, including:

(a) The Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum website (where the original version of this photo has the reference number "66-309-1").   

(b) Part of the US Army's history website

 

 

 

 

As of 28 December 2010, the Wikipedia page on the "Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force" (commonly abbreviated to "SHAEF") includes another photograph of the same individuals taken at a meeting in London (possibly at the same meeting). That photo is shown below (labelled "koi_ap_20_e") and the relevant caption on Wikipedia state "SHAEF commanders at a conference in London. Seated left to right: Air Chief Marshal Tedder, General Eisenhower, and General Montgomery. Standing: General Bradley, Admiral Ramsay, Air Chief Marshal Leigh-Mallory, General Smith".

5. Further references and resources

There is a rapid turnover of UFO material on the Internet. Many links to material on UFO websites quickly become out of date. Therefore, instead of giving many links to specific webpages I have instead included below a search box which can be used to search various leading UFO websites at the same time. You can then click on tabs at the top of the search results to list only results from forums, only results from websites I have labelled as "skeptical" etc. I have included tabs for a couple of specific websites that I find particularly useful, including the valuable archives of the UFO UpDates email discussion List. The relevant websites are all listed in the discussion of the "UFO Searchillion" search engine in Section 2.4 of the "Free UFO Researcher Starter Pack" and continues to evolve...

 

The relevant search box is one of the two main tools on this website which are intended to help reduce the amount of reinvention of the wheel within UFOlogy. The other main tool is the collection of tables of references to discussion of UFO incidents, personalities and other matters in various books. Those tables can be sorted by author, length and date. I hope these tools are useful.
