The Ghosts of The Cowra POW Breakout

The Ghosts of the Cowra POW Breakout

This article will be taking a look at the paranormal activity linked to the Cowra POW breakout from August the 5th, 1944, when over 1100 Japanese prisoners of war tried their best to break out of a prison camp in New South Wales, Australia…


Cowra

Cowra prison camp opened it’s doors in June 1941 for it’s first inmates – Italians.

Initially, the site was pretty basic, and the prisoners had to sleep out in tents. Their first ‘hard labor’ job was to construct weatherboard huts that they would later move into in 1942.

The first Japanese prisoner was named Toyoshima Hajime – he was apparently captured by aborigines after he had to make an emergency landing in his damaged warplane.

More Japanese followed and ended up in Compound B…an area that soon got completely overcrowded.

The Italian prisoners seemed to get on well with their captors, but the Japanese POW’s did not. They saw their capture as nothing more than a violation of traditional and ethic codes.

Initially, the security at Cowra was pretty light – mainly made up of disabled veterans and newbie soldiers. This light security continued until news of a Japanese riot in Featherston POW camp in New Zealand, forced the army authorities to up their game.

Vickers and Lewis machine guns were installed all around the Australian prison camp…


The Cowra Prison Breakout

The Cowra guards became aware of the Japanese breakout plan when a Korean prisoner decided to ‘back-stab’ them on the third of June, 1944.

He informed the security authorities that the Japanese POW’s were planning on storming the garrison, taking the weapons and escaping.

The authorities hastily decided to move the younger generation of Japanese soldiers to a new camp, as a way of splitting up the prisoner’s plans. The Japanese were informed of this course of action on the day before it was due to be carried out.

At 1:58 am on the 5th, a bugle was sounded as the Japanese prisoners from compound ‘B’ charged the perimeter armed with improvised weapons. They were also equipped with blankets which they used to get over the sharp steel barbed wire fences.

Only 359 POW’s managed to escape…but they were rounded up and recaptured within ten days of the prison break.

It is reported that 231 Japanese inmates were mowed down by machine gun fire during the escape – the Australian’s lost 4 prison soldiers in total.

Paranormal Activity

These days the Cowra site, along with it’s buildings, is nothing more than a ruin…but it is reported to be one of the most haunted locations in the country.

Over the years there have been numerous reports of Japanese music softly playing on the wind, after nightfall. A large number of visitors to the area have also reported hearing footsteps shadowing them, as they walk through the ruins.

Many psychics have visited the camp, and continually reinforce the belief that it is indeed haunted by the dead Japanese soldiers.

Fremantle Arts Centre – Paranormal Activity

Fremantle Arts Centre - Paranormal Activity

This article will be covering what many people refer to as ‘the most haunted building in Western Australia’ – the Fremantle Arts Centre.

Originally used as a overcrowded and underfunded psychiatric hospital, this location seems to be a hot spot for paranormal activity…


Convict Establishment Lunatic Asylum and Invalid Depot

Quite a mouthful, isn’t it?

Yet this was the original title given to the Fremantle Arts Centre back in 1864. It was set up out of necessity, as the original asylum was completely outdated and overflowing with unfortunate patients.

It has been reported that some of these patients, ended up in the local prison system, as this was the only way the local authorities could give them a bed!

Convict Establishment Fremantle Lunatic Asylum and Invalid Depot

It was originally set up to house no more than 50 patients, but it was soon expanded to accommodate many more inmates.

It is thought that the building had to expand during the gold rush of the 1890’s – eventually taking in prostitutes, the elderly, and minefield workers who were suffering from extreme sunstroke.


The Death of Catherine Clifford

The building hit the headlines in Australia for all the wrong reasons, in the year 1900.

A woman named Catherine Clifford ended up in one of it’s rooms after she had gone missing for days, and seemed to be a little confused when found.

On September the 25th, Mrs Clifford’s husband visited her and found her in a terrible state. She had been beaten severely by the patient who shared a room with her.

Three days later Mr Clifford recieved the following telegram:

“Your wife died this afternoon reply re burial” J.W. Hope, acting superintending medical officer.

There was total confusion over her death – some people believed that she had died when falling down the main stairs in the building…whilst many others believed she died as a result of her injuries from the beating.

The Death of Catherine Clifford

The authorities finally got involved and found out that the patients in the asylum were living a miserable life – it was completely overcrowded and in some cases, over 17 people were stuffed into one room!

They also uncovered information on another suspicious death that had taken place there, and decided to close the facility.

It took several years to relocate all of the unfortunate inmates.

The building was set to be demolished, but instead ended up being turned into a woman’s home in 1909.

In 1955 it was refurbished and given a new purpose – the The Fremantle Arts Centre.


Paranormal Activity

The large amount of paranormal activity that takes place in the centre is attributed to the suicides and suspicious deaths that took place when it was an asylum.

Cold spots are commonly felt, sounds of crying, laughter and yelling have been heard on occasion.

There have been several reports from visitors who claim that they have been tenderly kissed on the cheek whilst walking through the first floor (the main floor that seems to attract the most reports of paranormal activity).

The most famous apparition at the centre is that of a woman who lived there after her daughter was kidnapped.

She became heavily depressed when the authorities failed to locate her child and committed suicide by throwing herself through the first floor window.

Numerous reports claim to have seen this ghostly woman walking through the halls of the building, searching in vain for her missing daughter.

The Coventry Freemen Ghost

The Coventry Freemen Ghost

I first encountered this paranormal image about five years ago – at the time I struggled to find any ‘extra’ information on it, so I put it on the back-burner and saved it for a rainy day (so to speak!).

Anyway, last week I came across a short yet sweet article on the subject, and it provided me with a little more information on the incident/picture.

Let’s take a closer look at the Coventry Freemen Ghost (or Coventry Freemen Monk!)…


The Monk

First things first – do you notice anything strange about the photograph at the top of this article?

Take another look, at the ‘hooded’ guy standing at the end of the line…

The Monk

The image/photograph was taken during prayer at a 1985 dinner event for the Coventry Freemen organization (on January the 22nd).

The photographer who was hired for the night, decided that the prayer time was a perfect moment to snap a great memory of the occasion. The room was dark (to allow for a longer than usual exposure) and everyone was standing still.

A couple of weeks after the event, members and associates of the Coventry Freemen organization began to come forward with concerns regarding a robed figure standing near the end of one of the tables.

Nobody had turned up in this sort of costume for the event – and nobody remembers anyone standing in that position when the prayer took place.

The strange robed figure seemed to be joining in with the prayer – with head slightly bowed and hands clasped in front.


St Mary’s Guildhall – Paranormal Activity

St Mary’s Guildhall, where the event took place, is located in Coventry, Warwickshire. It is known to have a lot of paranormal activity linked to it.

The most famous reports involve a gray lady, a girl in a blue dress, strange lights/orbs and a monk. Many believe that this image from 1985 has managed to capture the paranormal monk!

St Mary's Guildhall - Paranormal Activity

Over the last decade or so, the ghostly photograph has been put under the microscope of numerous skeptics – most believing that the exposure has captured two people standing close together…

But I’m not too sure about this.

What about you?

A simple trick of the light or real paranormal photograph?

The Visions of Oakabella Homestead

The Visions of Oakabella Homestead

This article will be taking a look at the strange visions the current Oakabella Homestead owner had before she purchased her dream property…and the ghosts and spirits that still reside there…


Dreams Can Come True…

The current owner of the Oakabella Homestead had spent over forty years dreaming about a white house that sat in a hot and dusty area. These dreams were actually giving her a glimpse into the future – visions of a house she would own outside of Geraldton, Western Australia.

The decades of strange dreams took place when she was living in Canada, but in 1989, she decided to up roots and move on to Perth, Australia.

During the first few months of her new life in Perth, the dream became more vivid – much stronger and much more frequently.

Dreams Can Come True...

One day she decided to take a short road trip with one of her new Australian friends…and she was shocked to end up at the front door of the house she had been seeing in her dreams, for over four decades.


Oakabella Homestead History

The Homestead was first established by a James Drummond back in 1851…but it did not go down well with the local indigenous tribes.

The property ended up being built on one of their important religious sites –  and they were not going to sit back and let that happen, without a fight.

It wasn’t long before a full-on local war broke out between the natives and the pioneers. The indigenous population lost the fight, and also lost of large number of their tribesmen in the violence.

The Oakabella Homestead eventually went through several owners before William and Amy Jackson purchased the property in 1910. They opted to use the land for simple farming chores, and also bred horses for the British Army in India.

Oakabella Homestead History

History tells us that the Jackson family suffered from numerous child deaths over the decades, due to disease and freak accidents.

In 1973, George Jackson met an untimely end when he sat down to clean his gun…which went off accidentally, and killed him.

The property was eventually closed for refurbishment in 1995 and then opened again to the public in 1997, for tours. During the refurbishment, workers at the property found cat bones in the door and window frames.

These animal bones are apparently an old fashioned way of warding off demons and spirits.

The current owner of the Homestead has gone to great pains to keep the property as authentic as possible – numerous artifacts of 1800’s pioneering life are still on display there.

The Portal of Spirits


The Portal of Spirits

Many of the locals to the area believe that the Oakabella Homestead is a portal for the spirits – it is somewhere they can meet and appear to the living.

Numerous visitors have reported coming face to face with the ghostly figures of past owners, and children frequently claim to have met with the spirit of a little boy.

The current owners believe that the loudest, and most active spirit at the property, is that of George Jackson. They believe his ghost is behind the frequent banging sounds inside the Homestead’s walls.

The Yamaji people are the original owners of the Homestead’s land, and they point out that there were ancient spirits linked to the landscape, many centuries before the property was built. They also believe that these spirits have the power to influence your dreams…

The Moundsville Penitentiary Shadow Man

The Moundsville Penitentiary Shadow Man

This article will be covering the Moundsville Penitentiary shadow man image snapped by Polly Gear back in 2004.

Over the years, the Penitentiary has been the center of several reports of shadow people, usually linked to the thirty-six homicides and ninety-four executions that took place inside it’s walls.

The photograph has been the subject of numerous high-profile debunking attempts, which have ended up slightly messy and confusing.

Fake photograph or actual paranormal image – let’s take a closer look…


The Shadow Man Image

As I touched on above – many online avenues have published this paranormal photograph as a complete fake…but numerous paranormal experts still believe that this is not the case.

Hopefully by the end of this article, you will have enough information to make your own mind up on the subject.

The shadow man image was snapped by Polly Gear in 2004 at the abandoned West Virginia State Penitentiary in Moundsville, West Virginia.

The Shadow Man Image

When Gear took the photo, she was in the process of investigating the reports of shadow figures that have been filed by those visiting over the years.

Many paranormal experts believe that these shadow figures are the souls of the 94 executed men and 36 homicides that are linked to the dark building.

The Penitentiary went out of commission in 1995, and nine years later this fascinating paranormal image was snapped as Polly was making her way down a hallway, to the cafeteria.

She later claimed that the figure seemed like a black static entity that had a humanoid shape. She shone her torch at it and the beam of light seemed to cut straight through it’s body.

The entity looked down at the light that cut through it’s body, as if it knew what the result would be.

Gear didn’t panic or freak out – she calmly drew her camera from her bag and managed to snap this now infamous photograph.

She was gradually retreating from the shadow figure when she used her camera, and when she lowered it from her eye-level…the entity had disappeared.


The Debunking Attempts Begin…

The image of the shadow man hit the internet within a matter of days…and with that the debunking attempts began to crawl out of the woodwork.

Eventually the popular paranormal television show, Ghost Hunters, got involved, and claimed that they had successfully debunked the image.

They pointed out that someone had merely shone a IR light behind Polly, creating a shadow man image out of her actual shadow.

The Debunking

Unfortunately, their debunk was then debunked itself – turns out the crew of Ghost Hunters are not as clever as they think (no big surprise there!).

They indicated that Polly was 10 – 40 feet away when she took this picture, and created the fake shadow man image. Experts who then examined the photo pointed out that Polly was actually over 100 feet away from the entity in the picture.

This means that there is no way the shadow could have been this size – it would have been A LOT larger.

Now it’s over to you…

Do you believe the flimsy attempts of a debunk by the Ghost Hunters team?

Maybe they were simply jealous that Polly had managed to capture such a fascinating paranormal entity?

The Dead Children’s Playground

The Dead Children's Playground

In this article we will be taking a look at what is known as the Dead Children’s Playground, in Maple Hills Park, Huntsville, Alabama. Many locals to the area now believe that children buried in the nearby cemetery, rise from the dead to claim the park for their play….


They Only Come Out at Night

The council and authorities of Huntsville, Alabama, decided that it was time to knock down an aging playground so that the nearby cemetery could be expanded slightly.

The local were less than impressed.

Within days of the authorities statement of intent, a public outcry was underway, that eventually managed to change the council’s minds. They even replaced the old play rides with modern play equipment.

Many believe that the public outcry was due to the fact that so many kids used the playground…but not all of those kids were flesh and bone…


Paranormal Activity

Locals who live near the Maple Hill Park refer to the area as the ‘Dead Children’s Playground’. Over the years there have been numerous paranormal reports linked to the area.

Paranormal Activity

Most of these incidents have occurred after dark. Witnesses have claimed to have heard the ghostly yells of mothers calling out to their children, children playing, children calling out to each other and the sound of numerous small feet pattering around the area.

Locals believe that the most active time for this paranormal force is between the hours of 10 pm and 3 am – this is the time when the dead children know it is safe to come out and play.


The Nearby Cemetery

The nearby cemetery is called Maple Hill Cemetery, and many paranormal investigators believe that this is where the ghostly children come from at night.

It is the biggest cemetery in the Huntsville area, with over 80,000 burials throughout it’s history. The oldest intact grave marker is that of infant Mary Frances Atwood, who was buried there in 1820.

Strangely enough, the Dead Children’s Playground also has a popular urban legend linked to it…


The Child Disappearances

During the the early 1950’s, the area where the playground was built was apparently a limestone quarry. The cliff faces that surround the children’s area were all put in place during this quarry work time.

The quarry was closed, and nature moved back in, creating natural bushland, filled with weeds and trees.

The Child Disappearances

In the 1960’s, a rather sinister individual decided that this overgrown area would be perfect for his/her twisted actions…

Around this time, a series of child disappearances began to be reported in Huntsville…unfortunately, none of these children ever turned up…alive.

A local man who was walking his dog through the quarry area, stumbled across a tiny skull, and reported the find to the police. The whole area was searched thoroughly and several young bodies were uncovered.

They never managed to track down the twisted murderer, but they did find out more about the children who were killed. The bodies revealed that they were probably detained for long periods, and were suffering from Malnutrition.

The children’s remains were eventually buried in the nearby Maple Hill Cemetery.

Are these the children that use the park between the hours of 10 pm to 3 am?

Old Changi Hospital Ghost Stories

Old Changi Hospital Ghost Stories

This article will be covering a few of the Old Changi Hospital ghost stories that often arise at paranormal gatherings. Are these tragic hauntings linked to the death and cruelty that took place within its walls?

Let’s take a closer look…


Plans For The Singapore Changi Hospital

The Old Changi Hospital was last purchased in 2006 by a developer that proposed to build a luxury resort – it had been put up for sale by the Singapore Land Authority.

For some reason this purchase and construction plan went drastically wrong, and the location ended up being returned.

The people behind the purchase claimed that it was due to the high costs of the project…but locals believe it was down to the paranormal residents who still reside in the building…


Old Changi Hospital History

The Old Changi Hospital was built in 1935 as the Royal Air Force Hospital. In 1942 the ownership changed hands…when the Japanese invaded Singapore.

Many believe that the paranormal activity started in the hospital when the Japanese occupied it. They quickly turned it into a prison camp and base for the Japanese Secret Police.

Old Changi Hospital History

Many locals believe that resistance fighters were frequently taken to the hospital to be horrifically tortured for information. Apparently, hundreds of civilians and soldiers were killed there.

After the war the hospital reverted into a medical center once again, and in 1965 turned into the Singapore Armed Forces Hospital.

The hospital was closed in 1997 and has remained abandoned ever since.


Old Changi Hospital Haunted Happenings

These days, the hospital is considered the most haunted location in Singapore, with hundreds of paranormal experiences linked to it.

More often than not, brave visitors report seeing numerous shadow people in the abandoned wards and corridors. Many people have also reported hearing tortured, disembodied screams from groups of unfortunate, invisible people.

The strangest paranormal ‘event’ that takes place at this location happens when groups of thrill seekers enter the hospital…

During their ‘search’ through the hospital, the group will suddenly realize that one of their members is missing. They then make their way through the abandoned rooms until they find the missing member, in a lonely part of the hospital.

They will be disorientated and tell an all too familiar tale…

They enter the building with the full group, but suddenly one of the group members convinces them to break off from the main team – maybe they could experience more paranormal activity with just two of them?

Old Changi Hospital Haunted Happenings

So, they break off, and start exploring with the other friend…who suddenly disappears.

This is the point where the terror kicks in, and they are usually discovered by the group in a right old state of fear. When questioned they realize that this friend never left the group with them…they just walked off by themselves at some point!

Nobody seems to know much about this strange paranormal force, or why it takes the image of a friend and then deserts it’s victim?

It’s worth noting that over the last half century, several people have been rumored to have entered the building alone, never to be seen again…

The Ghosts of the Manila Film Center Tragedy

The Ghosts of the Manila Film Center Tragedy

This article will be taking a look at the harrowing Manila Film Center tragedy of November the 17th, 1981, and the paranormal activity that followed the incident…


Please Call my Family…

As a man walks past the now abandoned Manila Film Center in the mid 1990’s, he notices a man shuffling towards him gingerly. Without warning, this stranger hands over a calling card and asks the man if he would please call up his family.

A strange request, but the man is intrigued to find out more – he asks why he needs him to phone his family.

The stranger tells him that he needs to relay a message – that he wants them to be informed that he is okay, and he will be free soon.

The man agrees, and phones the stranger’s family up.

When he starts explaining to the family member who he is with, and what their message is…he is suddenly stopped in his tracks. He is told that the man he is talking to died at this location…about a decade earlier…


The Manila Film Center History

The center was finally completed in 1982 and was going to be the main building used in the upcoming 1st Manila International Film Festival, which was organized by Imelda Marcos.

Marcos, the first lady of the Philippines, really liked the idea of mixing in big circles – especially internationally. She wanted her country to follow her ambitious visions…so she rushed the organization of the film center.

The Manila Film Center History
Imelda Marcos Accepting Flowers

The constructions started off pretty well…until Marcos started changing the plans and causing long delays, bypassing safety regulations in some instances.

She eventually managed to get over 4000 workers there, employed in three shifts, working 24 hours a day.

There were constant reports of these workers being ordered to cut corners…so they did…


The Manila Film Center Tragedy

Early morning, on November the 17th, 1981, and tragedy struck the construction area when a large portion of scaffolding collapsed and tipped 169 workers into quick drying cement.

Marcos and the authorities realized that this meant trouble – they had been ignoring safety measures far too frequently. Instead of sending for the emergency services…they simply closed off the area and put up a security blackout.

This blackout lasted for over nine hours in total, before the rescue services could get in. Some workers had managed to get themselves out of the cement, others had died in the fall…and some died stuck in the cement, from their injuries.

The Manila Film Center Tragedy

Marcos indicated that the area was closed off because she thought there was some form of sabotage on the construction…but many people believe she was trying to save face, and still get the building finished in time.

It is estimated that 15 of 169 workers died that day…but the building was eventually finished on time, and the film festival went ahead…


The Haunting

After the festival, the center was turned into a film archive and became quite a popular location…until an earthquake hit it in the mid 1990’s, leaving it abandoned for a decade. It was eventually reopened as a stage for a trans-gender acting and dance group.

We touched on the spirit of stranger who wants visitors to phone home…but there have been many other instances of paranormal activity recorded at the location.

Visitors frequently leave the building in distress after claiming they have heard cries and moans of distress, coming from the concrete foundations of the building. There have also been a handful of reports where witnesses have seen apparitions stuck in concrete partitions and flooring.

Many performers hate the late night rehearsals because the paranormal activity seems to escalate after dark. Many leave early after complaining about a crushing, claustrophobic feeling as they try and work.

The Highland Towers Case

The Highland Towers Case

This article will be taking a closer look at the Highland Towers case of 1993, and the Malaysian spirits the tragedy left in it’s wake…


The Collapse

The Highland Towers were originally built as homes for the Malaysian middle class in the mid 1970’s. The towers blocks were built quite close to one another, at the base of a rather steep hill.

A creek ran straight through the same area as the tower blocks, but the authorities had developed a pipe system that diverted the water away from the towers.

In 1991, an new development started right next to the Highland Towers site. This new construction work involved removing all of the trees and plant life from the nearby hill.

Leaving it open to the elements…

Before long, the exposed hill land, and problems with the pipes diverting water, led to the hill soil becoming totally saturated.

At 1.35 pm, December the 11th, 1993, after 10 continuous days of rain and flooding, the hill’s soil finally gave way and crashed into Block 1 of the Highland Towers.

highland towers collapse

The twelve story building stood no chance – it crashed to the ground breaking into a series of large sections.

A total of 53 people died inside the doomed tower block.


The Taxi Driver’s Tale

In 1994, a local taxi driver notices a young woman signalling at the side of the road…in the pouring rain. He pulls over to let her in.

She get’s into the car and informs the driver that she would like to go to ‘Hillview’.

Something bugs the driver – when she speaks the words ‘Hillview’ a chill runs up his spine.

As they drive along the taxi driver attempts to strike up a conversation with the young woman…but she seems completely distracted…even a little distressed.

highland tower malaysia

On arrival at Hillview, the lady motions for the taxi to pull to the side of the road. The driver immediately recognizes the area – it’s the scene of the recent tragedy – The Highland Towers.

The taxi driver was fully aware that the buildings had been abandoned after the disaster, so he asks the woman what she is wanting to do at this location, in the middle of the night.

The young woman replies that she has left some very important possessions inside the building.

The driver feels the chill inside the car get stronger…and he asks the woman what these important possessions are?

She replies…

“My body and my life, I died here last year.”


The Highland Towers Tragedy

There are numerous paranormal reports linked to the Highland Towers tragedy – most of them coming from local taxi drivers in the area.

Locals to the Hillview area claim to frequently witness ghosts wandering through the trees of the building’s former site.

The Highland Towers Tragedy

It is an area that is popular with brave students – daring one another to walk deeper into the tower block areas…

Entally House

Entally House

This article will be taking a closer look at the spirit of Entally House, located in Hapsden, 15 kilometers South West of Launceston, Tasmania. Who is this turbaned male Indian entity that materializes on the staircase, and why is he linked to the property?


Sneaky Mary

The house was built in 1819 by Thomas Haydock Reibey – son of Mary and Thomas Reibey. His mother, Mary, was a bit of a girl really – she was arrested and charged with stealing horses back in 1791, in Lancashire.

This resulted in her being sentenced to seven years transportation, and she arrived in Sydney in October, 1792.

It was here that she met her husband-to-be, Thomas Reibey.

entally estate

Now, Thomas was a bit of a razor-sharp businessman, and he ended up with several successful companies. When he died in 1811, Mary took over all the businesses and they became even more successful.

She retired extremely wealthy, in 1830.

Mary Reibey died on the 30th of May, 1855 – she outlived five of her seven children. She had been involved in numerous charities supporting local areas – she has even featured on the Australian $20 note since 1994!!!

The businesses were then left to her eldest son, Thomas Reibey II, who began building the Entally Estate in 1819…

Mary Reibey

The Entally Ghost

Entally House was named after a suburb of Kolkata, in India. Thomas decided to honor a merchant who had aided his father in India many years before, by naming the estate, and the house, after the area this man lived – Entally.

The Entally ghost first hit the headlines in 1954 when a Melbourne-based newspaper, The Argus, published a story on it.

The article mentioned a woman who had ran into the ghost in Entally, and had been so traumatized, she ended up being sent on to the New Norfolk Asylum to recover.

Over the years there have been other sightings of this ghost – an apparition that appears as a Turbaned Indian.

Locals believe that he only ever appears to you on the stairs of Entally house…and he can only be seen by women.

These days the staircase is cut off half way – so if you walk up them, you will arrive at a section you will not be able to pass. This is the point where he appears.

Witnesses claim that the air suddenly turns freezing cold on the staircase and the Turbaned Indian suddenly appears for a few seconds, before disappearing again.

Paranormal experts believe that this Indian spirit is somehow linked to Thomas Reibey, and his experiences with the merchant in suburb of Kolkata. Others believe that Reibey brought back a possessed item from India, and his son unwittingly placed it in the house he built.
