Reader Submission: Squadron Spirit


“When I was younger, I was part of the air cadets. I was often at the squadron (the place in which we’d meet for our weekly meetings) until late. One night, my step father asked me to go through to the next building, which was connected to the first building by a hallway, and photocopy some documents while he was in a meeting. The other building was closed as it was about 11:30 p.m. and so the lights were all turned off. However, there was enough light for me to see where I was going so I kept the lights off.

As I turned the corner, I saw a very tall man in uniform walk down the corridor and into the room I was heading to. I walked into the room, turned on the light, smiled and said ‘Good evening, sir,’ but no one was there. I finished what I needed to do and left. As we we were closing up the squadron for the night, I asked if the officer I’d seen had left the building yet. I was worried he’d get locked in. The staff looked at me, confused, and said that no one was in the building. In fact, it been closed for a few days. They checked the building, and indeed there was no one inside. After I told my step dad what I had seen, he told me that the building was known for being haunted. They didn’t tell the teenagers as they thought we might get scared.

The man I saw was  a completely black, solid figure. That’s why I’m sure it wasn’t my mind playing tricks on me. After that experience, if I was left alone in one of the rooms at the squadron, weird stuff would happen like things falling over or loud banging noises. I believe that whoever, or whatever is, at the squadron knows that I know they’re there.”

One thought on “Reader Submission: Squadron Spirit

  1. Very creepy indeed. I believe sometimes we see spirits and do not realize that they indeed are spirits. They look very normal and solid. I would very much like to see a solid spirit one day, not just a mist or shadow.
