THE GHOST CLUB
Over the last twenty or more years myself and my dear wife Mary have been photographing what we believe to be discarnate spirits and also elemental beings. A number of our photographs have been published in this newspaper ‘Psychic World’ but other than one single example of a Goblin photo featured in a magazine there has been little mainstream media interest. I believe that with the new multiple mega-pixel digital cameras it is now more possible than ever before that anomalous phenomena can be captured on film albeit in a digital format. I include in this article an example for you to see for yourself this image shows what I believe to be an elf or fairy materialised in my hair. The image is untouched other than having been cropped to enable you to better see the elemental entity.
The problem I have found with presenting out photographs of fairies and spirits etc. to scientific sceptical experts is that they claim not to be able to see the anomalous phenomena that I can quite clearly see. Now this may well be because I am a psychic clairvoyant with an advanced facility trained over many years or it may be that there are none so blind as those that will not see. I seriously suspect the latter to be the case. In one instance I took a number of selected images that, to me at least, clearly show either materialised spirits or elemental beings. The result was that the photographic expert took a look, declared he could not see anything unusual in the images and pointed out to me that to believe otherwise was to be taking a step on the path to insanity.
I am quite certain that my wife Mary is a sane and sensible person, despite being married to me and she would be the first to point out my mistakes if she believed I was jumping to incorrect or fanciful conclusions. So I decided to test my belief in the existence of spirits and elementals captured on camera and sent samples of the files to various high profile sceptics and parapsychologist etc. To date not a single one has had the decency to respond. Then I came across an internet site dedicated to The Ghost Club. The following is taken directly from that internet website:
THE GHOST CLUB:
The club has its roots in Cambridge when in 1855 fellows at TrinityCollege began to discuss ghosts and psychic phenomena. Formally launched in London in 1862 (attracting some light hearted ridicule in “The Times”), it counted amongst its early members Charles Dickens and Cambridge academics and clergymen.
This group undertook practical investigations of spiritualist phenomena, which was then much in vogue and would meet and discuss ghostly subjects. The Ghost Club seems to have dissolved in the 1870s following the death of Dickens but it was relaunched in 1882 simultaneously with the Society for Psychical Research (SPR) with whom there was an initial overlap of members.
The Ghost Club was revived on All Saints Day 1882 by A.A.Watts and a famous contemporary medium, the Reverend Stainton Moses. Whilst the SPR was a body devoted to scientific study the Club remained a selective and secretive organisation of convinced believers for whom psychic phenomena were an established fact. Stainton Moses resigned from the vice presidency of the SPR in 1886 and thereafter devoted himself to the Club which met monthly, with attendance being considered obligatory except for the most pressing reasons. Membership was small – 82 members over 54 years – but during this period the Club attracted some of the most original – and controversial minds in psychical research, serving almost as a place of refuge for those who were unable to pursue activities elsewhere. These included Sir William Crookes who attracted scandal after investigation into Florence Cook, a medium.
Since its founding in 1862, the Ghost Club has welcomed many luminaries to its membership. The list includes Charles Dickens, Sir William Crookes, Air Chief Marshall Lord Dowding, Arthur Koestler, Dr.C.E.M.Joad, Donald Campbell, Sir Julian Huxley, Sir Osbert Sitwell, W.B.Yeats, Sigfreid Sassoon, Dennis Wheatley, Dennis Bardens and Peter Cushing. Present members include the explorer and founder of Operations “Drake” and “Raleigh” Colonel John Blashford-Snell, OBE, and noted paranormal investigators Maurice Grosse, John and Anne Spencer and Reverend Lionel Fanthorpe, as well as author Lynn Picknett . A previous chairman of the Ghost Club was W.T.G. (Tom) Perrott, a life member of the club and an eminent figure in the field of psychical research. The club has investigated many famous locations during its lifetime, such as BorleyChurch, Chingle Hall, The Queen’s House, RAFCosfordAerospaceMuseum, GlamisCastle, Winchester Theatre, WoodchesterMansion, Michelham Priory and the Clerkenwell House of Detention.
The chief investigating officer of The Ghost Club is today an erudite gentleman called Mr. Derek Green and on the website is listed his contact email address. So having been ignored and or ridiculed by many supposed experts I decided to send Mr. Green an email including a small selection of photographic images in JPG files. Some short time passed and I received a reply from Mr. Green advising me that my submissions to The Ghost Club had been forwarded to the committee. I am awaiting a considered response and hope that our photographs will be properly examined and evaluated. There has been no tampering with the files and if you met my wife Mary you would instantly understand that fraudulent tinkering for effect would be out of the question. So I will keep you all posted on developments and if you get the chance I highly recommend you visit the website of The Ghost Club: WWW. Ghostclub.org.uk It must be a brilliant organisation as my friend the author Colin Wilson was a member.
