Fort Borstal – 31st October 2014 (Kym)

Fort Borstal 31st October 2014
Rochester, Kent
Halloween Special

Area: Counterscarp ‘Dungeon’
Equipment: KII’s, Ghost Pro’s, Dowsing Rods, Pendulums, Writing Planchette & Glass Work
This was a new area, of which we had only investigated on our recent live event, so was interested in what spirits liked to do here.

Group D – We started with the writing planchette as some of the guests had done that before, but unfortunately initially no movement.  We then switched to glass work and we had a male spirit wishing to communicate with us.  He had been married with children, lived in Kent, had passed over from an illness before the 1800’s, he was over 60 years old.  Asking spirit if they would like to use the writing planchette, with a yes we tried again.  We had a lot of writing, his initials were possibly M or W, he wrote the guests initials, he also copied a triangle and number 8 that I had drawn on a pad, not showing the guests, on to the paper.  He then copied what the guests were thinking in their head.  The planchette started tipping up randomly too.  We did hear a bang in the room next to us.  The spirit finished the session with lots of random patterns on the paper.  The spirit felt happy for us to be there.

Group A – Started with the writing planchette, and again received lots of random drawings, nothing too specific, except one of the guests initials when asked.  Some guests were using the rods and pendulums, and were asking spirit questions.  Two guests, when comparing information after, had both got the initial D for the spirit, and the name Daniel.  Remembering my previous session, we had got the letter D a few times on the paper.  Just when I thought it might be a good time to experiment, I asked Carol (guest) to write something down for the spirit to copy (she was standing away from the table), and at that point the planchette stopped, and Louise (guest) felt a thump on her side.  It was as if the spirit thought “sod this, I’m off!”.  We did get some slight movement with the glass, but decided to try table tipping briefly.  Just before we started though Emma (guest) heard a gust of wind pass her (no windows/doors open to cause this).  We did get quite a bit of lifting on the table.

Group B – Glass work – drew the letter I for initial – name Ian – yes.  British soldier connected to the fort, fought in France in WW1, but died in Kent of natural causes aged over 70.  He died in Medway Hospital, and at this point one of the guests, Amanda, asked if she had cared for him when she worked there.  Yes – in Keats Ward where she worked.  Asked if Byron ward – no.  He died in 1999 when she was a student nurse there, but she couldn’t remember him as she had cared for the elderly and many had passed.  He did confirm there were 9 spirits with us, and he knew them.
Group C – With my last group we started with the rods & pendulums.  Again asking spirit questions.  We tried the writing planchette but had no movement.  Tried the glass, and had some slight movement, but not enough to ask questions.  We then tried some table tipping and had a few lifts/tilts.
