A description of the experience
THE ANGEL WARRIORS AT MONS [continued]
The spiritual exaltation, which is always liable to accompany great battles, has indeed given rise in numerous authenticated instances of psychical phenomena of an entirely abnormal kind, and such phenomena on the present occasion have not been confined to only one theatre of the war. Stories have been widely current in the Russian army that many Russian sentinels have seen the famous ghost of General Skobeleff in white uniform and riding his white charger. This apparition is supposed to appear when the armies of the Tsar are in imminent danger, and invariably to create a panic in the enemy's ranks.
General Skobeleff, it will be remembered, played a conspicuous part in the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78, in particular in the storming of the then Turkish fortress of Plevna.
