I thought I’d tell you of a local legend in Southend-on-Sea that I heard growing up and thought you’d enjoy. In our town, there is a pretty grim underpass that’s been there for years, and has developed a reputation for being crime-ridden and basically a no-go-area after dark. However, more interesting is the ghost said to haunt it.
Specific Location: Southend-on-Sea
14 October 1954 while flying over the Thames Estuary near Southend-on-Sea, at about 4.15pm, Flight Lieutenant James Saladin ,who was piloting a Gloster Meteor Mark VIII, spotted three objects approaching him. Two of these objects, one gold and one silver, flew to either side of his aircraft, and one directly in his flight path. He submitted a report of the incident to his airbase.
