The experiments of Mrs. A. M. Kaulback and her sons in telepathy

A description of the experience
Patterns of Prophecy – Alan Vaughan
In one series of long-distance telepathy experiments conducted by an English sensitive, Mrs. A. M. Kaulback, with her two sons, Ronald and Bill, some interesting facts emerged.
In more than 250 attempts to describe her sons' activities many thousands of miles away, Mrs. Kaulback wrote out "word-pictures" that she felt came from discarnate communicators rather than her sons themselves.
Both boys kept detailed diaries so they would be able to annotate their mother's impressions later. Some of Mrs. Kaulback's detailed word-pictures corresponded in both time and detail to the boys' activities; others were postcognitive-descriptions of recent past events; while still others were precognitive-descriptions of future events. Here is an example of such a precognitive word-picture that was written in England on November 4, 1942,, when Bill Kaulback was in the British army in North Africa:
I [Harry Kaulback, Mrs. Kaulback's deceased husband] want to tell you that Bill is getting command of a battalion. I am very proud of him. I was with him when he got orders and, when you write, tell him Pop was with him when a message was handed to him. Bill had been having breakfast and was on his way back to his own house. An orderly came up, saluted, and handed him a letter. Bill tore it open and exclaimed with pleasure. Then he retraced his steps and went into a room- evidently a study-where there was an officer. I think his rank was that of a full colonel. Bill showed him this letter and this other man said: "I congratulate you but am very sorry to lose you."
Bill's annotation was:
On this day (Nov. 4, 1941) the battle of El Alamein had just reached its climax and early that morning my division the 7th Armoured-spearheaded the break-through and started the pursuit into Cyrenaica. I was then second in command of the regiment. It was not actually until a month later, on the 1st of December, that the scene occurred which is described here so accurately. It was early in the morning that a message arrived from Army Headquarters appointing me to command another regiment in the Brigade. I had been waiting for this for some time. . . . We were at Benghazi at the time in bivouac [in tents], but the Brigade Headquarters was in a building, and I went over there to see my late Commanding Officer who was temporarily in charge of the Brigade. So by chance it was in a room that I broke the news to him. All is exactly as Dad describes except that the officer was a Lieut. Colonel and not a full Colonel.
Thus the telepathy attempt of November 4, 1942, was an inadvertent prophecy of what was to take place a month later several thousands of miles away. This type of temporal confusion happened so often that Mrs. Kaulback asked one of her communicators, "Uvani" (who more often was the Arab control of Eileen Garrett), for an explanation. He replied through her hand that
". at times the pictures are perchance taken from the mind of the boy and shown to you. And it must therefore be that we strive yet more earnestly that we see but actual deeds, for thoughts are not what we endeavor to collect. Sometimes, too, the visions slip from firm grasp, and we see what is about to be done perhaps at some future date. It is not easy grasping time between two planes; and in addition do we try to grip the different times upon your earth, therefore on occasion do we sadly err."
