Aller (?) - Private flat
Circa August 1963
After moving in to their flat, a couple were subjected to a manifesting male figure who appeared in their living room. Ornaments would also be moved by an unseen hand.

Alwington - Portledge Manor
At midnight, a ringing church bell woke the Crosse household, who were staying at the manor at the time.

It was later discovered that a member of that family had died in India at the time of the ringing.
Ashburton - Skies north of the village
Admiralty Intelligence Officers investigated a series of strange lights which were seen in the skies over the area by multiple witnesses.
