Hello all this is new member Peter C here, I am returning to Paranormal Investigation after a lengthy break.
I am interested in World War I Paranormal activity and though over the years I have read off and on of accounts dealing with WW1 Paranormal activity ranging from haunted U-Boats to Phantom Pilots I have never been able to find a book {or for that matter even a chapter of a book} dealing with WW I Paranormal activity.
I am wondering if maybe I have simply missed finding the above OR perhaps as yet there has not been a concentrated attempt to gather such data???.
Any comment welcome. Peter C.

I've heard accounts of some haunted areas of WWI battlefields. Your best bet is probably to look at specific locations and research paranormal activity there. I don't think your going to find much in print.

I have a book, in dutch, called mysterie 14/18. Its subject is the hidden mystical-occult story behind the first world war. Its written by Richard Heijster. Who visited personal many 'hot spots'and former battle fields in the first world war. In the secound part of the book , page 167-238, he describes his personal and other ones experiences with the paranormal on belgium and french former battle fields.

for exemple The talbot house an former British militairy club house in Belgium. During the first world war it was used as a social-meeting place for both ordinary soldiers and highers officiers. Witnesses reported the sightings of not only ghost soldiers but also doctors und nurses in the building.

The Biggest "Ghost" story of the first world war was the "Angel of Mons".

I found a couple of things. One is a bizarre disappearance.

"
Three soldiers claimed to be witnesses to the bizarre disappearance of an entire battalion in 1915. They finally came forward with the strange story 50 years after the infamous Gallipoli campaign of WWI. The three members of a New Zealand field company said they watched from a clear vantage point as a battalion of the Royal Norfolk Regiment marched up a hillside in Suvla Bay, Turkey. The hill was shrouded in a low-lying cloud that the English soldiers marched straight into without hesitation.
They never came out. After the last of the battalion had entered the cloud, it slowly lifted off the hillside to join other clouds in the sky. When the war was over, figuring the battalion had been captured and held prisoner, the British government demanded that Turkey return them. The Turks insisted, however, that it had neither captured not made contact with these English soldiers."

The second one:
"This intriguing photo, taken in 1919, was first published in 1975 by Sir Victor Goddard, a retired R.A.F. officer. The photo is a group portrait of Goddard's squadron, which had served in World War I at the HMS Daedalus training facility. An extra ghostly face appears in the photo. In back of the airman positioned on the top row, fourth from the left, can clearly be seen the face of another man. It is said to be the face of Freddy Jackson, an air mechanic who had been accidentally killed by an airplane propeller two days earlier"

I know the Angel of Mons has been mentioned, but if you have a Kindle or the software to read Kindle books, Amazon has a FREE ebook on the subject that is very enlightening about how it was all created as a piece of fiction, yet soldiers started coming out with stories that they had actually seen it.

Being a World War 2 enthusiast, it causes me wonder why, after the millions upon millions of people killed in both World Wars in the same general locations (except the Pacific), that there aren't more ghost or hauntings stories. I have heard of a few here and there, but nothing like one would think it would be.
No one knows how the other side works and why one spirit would come back when many others do not, apparently. It's crazy and mind-boggling to even consider the reasonings. And I don't go for the "unfinished business" explanaiton. That's redundant and regurgitated whenever people don't have an explanation, because there just isn't one that we can grasp.

There just isn't a whole lot of info out there on WWI Ghosts.

Continental Europeans are weird about the paranormal and don't seem to want to speak about such things.

Normandy is very very haunted . Phantom sounds and Apparitions 24/7 but you don't hear about it at all.

Maybe they think Tourists won't come if they think the places are haunted......










If you are interested I have a few postcards I picked up in Grafenwoehr, Germany while stationed there of both WWI and WWII eras. You can view them here at my Flickr Page.........

Thanks for posting this, logan. Did you experience the phenomena in Normandy or hear about it? Either way I want to know more about experiences. And one would think that Europeans would be more open to the paranormal, but as you said...
As far as the postcards are concerned, that is an additional hobby of mine. I will check those out. Currently I have received several WW2 German battlefield pick-up items from Latvia. The spirit attachment theory looms in my minds.

That's fine; I would like to read up on some accounts as well. I will try to get back here over the weekend to again watch the two vids you posted; didn't have a set of headphones at work. I ususally don't get on here over the weekend; I will be busy with house repairs, messing with my collection, and some range time, if possible. Wants to be shootin' me M1 Garand and my Mosin-Nagant.
Happy Memorial Day to you and everyone here. Again thank you for your service, logan.
