Lethbridge, T C - Ghost and Ghoul – A second war time prophecy



Type of Spiritual Experience


A description of the experience

T C Lethbridge – Ghost and Ghoul

Early in 1940 I was talking with [his friend E.] again and complaining that at that time I had no interesting part to play in the war.

‘You soon will have,' she said. 'I don't know what it is, but it has a 4 and a crown in it. You will find it very interesting’.

Some  time later, with the invasion scare, the Local Defence Volunteers were formed, which soon became the Home Guard.  Entirely unforeseen, for I had expected to go to sea, I became involved in the raising and training of part of the 4th Cambridge-shire battalion of this force and ended up with a crown, commanding a company. I found the formation and training of the village platoons absorbingly interesting and learnt more about the country people of the shire than I could have done in a lifetime of piping peace. I also had a most fascinating time attempting to unravel the clandestine communications of what must have been a Fifth Column organization.

These kept the countryside bright with scribbled messages in code until, with the German invasion of Russia, they ceased over-night.
