Mitch Glover, a 14 year old boy of Leamington Spa claims that he was able to photograph a ghost during his school trip to France.
The boy was taking photos of the scenery with his Iphone in his visit at a German war cemetery at Neuville-Saint Vaast near Arras in northern France. In a closer inspection of the photograph of the alleged ghostly image, a human-like image is clearly is clearly noticeable on the left-center part of the picture that resembles that of the looks of a World War I soldier who appears to be watching over the graves. The picture was magnified to see a closer look at the cloudy image, and it appeared to be wearing a kilt and Tam o’ Shanter uniform. The same uniform as the Seaforth Highlander regiment used during the First World War. The ghostly image also seems to be in a guarding position where he holds a rifle in his right arm that is evident in the way the ghost’s arms are postured.
The regiment is a part of the British army whose majority of its men were from the northern highlands of Scotland. The Seaforth Highlanders suffered heavy casualties from the Nazi Empire in the battle of the Aisne in September 1914.
Mitch and his family only noticed the scary ghost looking image when the boy got home from the trip. Her mother Sue, a 50-year expert in antiques, had an exemplary feeling that they are actually having eye on a real ghost. She freaked-out and could not believe with what his boy was able to bring home that soon became understandable to her while she research the history of the Seaforth Highlander Regiment.
Neuville-Saint contains 44, 833 entombments and is considered today as the biggest German cemetery in France. These countless dead bodies buried in a large isolated piece of land will surely spook anyone who visits Neuville-Saint. The battles of World War I are perhaps one of the most horrifying experiences for any man to be in, and this picture might be a sign that tormented souls of those who have died in the First World War still wanders the world today.
These spirits might still be trapped in this world that is why we can still see them through the eyes of our camera’s lenses perhaps a prayer might be one of the things they need to detach them completely from our world so that they could eventually cross into the afterlife. But that is only a notion; the living still has no idea why the departed makes this kind of apparitions.
