I actually saw the ghost in the old Work Point Officer‘s Mess. A subaltern, in a early 1900’s scarlet uniform (fully transparent- I could see the wall through him). Got to say, it was not really scary, so much as just…interesting. I asked him to please move along so I could get some sleep and he did.
It’s funny, I always thought seeing a ghost would scare the heck out of me.
Several years ago, when my grandfather on my dad’s side passed away, we kept his urn at our house for a few months.
The idea was to ship his urn to England to be buried beside his brother, but shipping urns is more expensive than one may realize, so his urn stayed at our house for a while.
Specifically, it stayed in my dad’s office which was in the basement. My bedroom was also in the basement on the opposite side. From my bed, I could see out my bedroom door straight to his office.
One night, the light outside my bedroom door turned on. It woke me up, as I wasn’t expecting to have light shining in my face in the middle of the night, and thought one if my parents was coming downstairs for some reason…
But as I opened my eyes and looked down towards my door, I could clearly see my grandfather standing in my dad’s office right beside his urn. He walked right towards my bedroom door until he got to the basement stairs, then turned and went up the stairs.
(I know I wasn’t dreaming because I eventually had to get up and turn that light back off)
I thought I’d be terrified if I ever clearly saw a ghost. Turns out it was just…yeah. Interesting. Wasn't freaked out at all.
