British boy Photographs Scottish Soldier's Ghost During Cemetery Visit
Is this the ghost of a First World War warrior?
A British boy claims to have captured the specter of a Scottish soldier while snapping away on his iPhone at a battlefield cemetery in France.
Mitch Glover took several photographs during a school trip to the Neuville-St. Vaast German burial ground, near Arras, last week.
When he got home to Leamington Spa in Warwickshire, he was stunned to see what looked like a soldier — wearing a kilt and tam-o'-shanter — in one of the images.
"I ran upstairs to show my mum. She was kind of freaked out," the 14-year-old told the Daily Record.
The teen was even more shocked when, after researching the history of the region, he discovered that the site was close to the Nine Elms military cemetery.
Spookily, it’s where Scottish soldiers from the 114th Seaforth Highlanders fell in battle in April 1917.
