In March, ghost hunting events company Paranormal Tours gave delegates an opportunity to test their own ghost busting and psychic abilities in an all night vigil.
Paranormal Tours Development Manager Kerry Marsay said; “Since our last investigation there have been more reports of unusual activity in the Museum. Visitors continue to report strange distortions in photographs they have taken in the museum. A professional photographer commissioned by the Museum to take internal shots discovered during processing that many of his pictures had been ruined by an unexplainable streak of light though the frames.
“Others claim to have seen mysterious figures wandering about the Museum floor in historic servicemen’s attire – the latest report came in from a member of the public just two weeks ago. Over the years, Museum staff have also told tales of hearing footsteps, seeing apparitions, and of having that eerie feeling of being watched. ”
One enduring Tank Museum story features a ghostly figure dressed in the grey uniform of a German Officer. He is said to prowl the Museum floor at night, and has been seen so frequently over the years that he has become affectionately known as `Herman the German`.
Whilst Herman failed to make his presence known in March, a number of vehicles seemed to attract the attention of the Paranormal Tours psychic.
“The World War II Hanomag, Panzer and Tiger tanks were all a hive of paranormal activity,” says Kerry, “and there was plenty of unusual activity reported all over this site, which will allow us to focus our investigations during our next visit.”
Paranormal researchers are returning to Bovington to continue their investigations into spooky goings on at The Tank Museum.
The investigation will take place on Saturday 26th to the morning of Sunday 26th of November 2005.
Guests will be treated to a hearty meal, ghost hunting workshop and demonstration of ghost hunting equipment before the all night investigations begin.
If you would like to take part, contact 0871 288 4036 or visit the Paranormal Tours website for more information.
Investigators must be over the age of 18 and spaces are strictly limited.
