Is this Freddy Jacksons Ghost?
Air Mechanic Freddy Jackson met his untimely death in 1919. He was killed in a rather gruesome accident, walking into an aeroplane propeller.
This intriguing photograph – taken in 1919 – was first published by Sir Victor Goddard, a retired R.A.F. officer around 1975.
The photograph is of a group portrait of Goddard’s squadron, which had served in World War I aboard the HMS Daedalus. This was the final photograph before they were to be disbanded.
Very clearly – and personally identified by Sir Goddard – was the spirit of Freddy Jackson. Sir Goddard who was an officer and very reliable witness in this case said:
“When the group photograph was put up on the noticeboard so that those who wanted copies could write their names below, those who scanned the photograph identifying friends then saw—or they were prompted then to see—the face of Freddy Jackson, air mechanic, in the topmost row. Capless and smiling, his face being partly hidden by another, his expression seemed to say, “My goodness me—I nearly failed to make it! … They didn’t wait, or leave a place for me, the blighters!”
Sceptics trying to debunk the photograph have failed at every juncture, resorting to claiming that Freddy Jackson may not be a real person.
Yet, so strong the evidence, witnesses impeccable reliability, and countless airmen who have never refuted the claims, that there is nothing left for the cynics to grasp on too. Strange, yet true!
