She said it was a WW1 soldier in a long army greatcoat and they saw it many times. How spooky is that?
I have got a story just like that .
My friends grandson was staying and in the house her back porch was covered into a "sunroom"
pal gets up one night and granson is out in the sunroom talking to himself ( she thinks ) and she says to him , go back to bed it 2.00am , he says grams the man wants to play, what man ? you know the man with the long grey coat, , pal is scared now , her wee inside voice is screaming. she says tell him your need to sleep and he can come back the morra,
grandson says, he said he can't he has to go to the war.
A year before this she was doing some redecorating and came across an old diary that was written in a womans hand , the " man " it seems was a boy in his mid teens who wanted to play with his brother before going off to war. he never came back , but the boy would waid in the sun room every night to see if he would come home .
