'Ghost' of Scottish soldier photographed by 14 year old (video)

ghost of scottish soldier
A teenage boy has snapped what he believes to be the ghostly figure of a soldier during a school visit to war graves in France.

Mitch Glover snapped the images at the Neuville-St Vaast German war cemetery near Arras, in northern France, scene of bloody battles nearly a hundred years ago.

The 14-year-old used an atmospheric black and white setting to take four pictures with his iPhone.

In one of the four, a pale shape can be seen at the left of the frame.

Glover, from Leamington Spa, decided to research the history of the region and discovered the shape of the apparition could resemble that of the kilt and Tam o’Shanter uniform of the historic Seaforth Highlander regiment.

The largest German cemetery in France, containing 44,833 burials, it is located a few hundred metres away from Nine Elms military cemetery. Buried at Nine Elms are twelve N.C.O'S. and men of the 114th Seaforth Highlanders who fell on the 9th April, 1917.
