the monkey man

recently i came across these WW2 images of a planes crew and their 2 mascots [ Scrappy the dog and Joe the monkey].  the photos were taken on Parham airfield , Suffolk around the year 1944. Most of the men died later that year on a mission over Germany…. Heres where it gets creepy>>>>

Back in the year 2000 i was spending my work days on that former airfield. One lunchtime break i was walking my dog there where once the planes had stood and suddenly up ahead of us in the tufted grass appeared what i can only describe as “a small naked man”,pink colour about 18inches high. It immediately ran away from us [my dog stopped in her tracks and i too stood stock still].  It ran upright,was pink ,no hair and its arms were swinging just as a man runs.  it was about 18 inches tall and i never saw its face,it ran a few yards along the path , then darted off to the right into dense undergrowth and joe4out of sight . ive never forgotten this!

seeing this old image of the monkey mascot has got me thinking,was it the monkeys ghost i saw that day ?joe
