Don't know if this is the right Twist Drill.

 

But apparently my Great Grandad's ghost was oftenly seen at The Twist Drill factory? But apparently somebody told me that the factory in mention has been knocked down?

 

It's my Grandma's dad, His surname was Tingle???, and his ghost was oftenly seen wondering around the old factory?????

 

The ghost in the Brown Over-coat???

 

But anyway, an old colleague of my Great grandad told my granma about the ghost and she thought it was just old rumour, and got quite upset about the all thing, but a recent book " A ghost-hunter's guide to Sheffield", had a feature about my great-grandad in it, so my nan decide to write to the author "Valerie Salim" about my Great Grandad!.

 

So...........

 

Does anybody have any stories about my Great-Grandad's ghost???

 

Does anybody actually re-call my great-grandad Tingle???

 

Look forward to your replies!

The firewatcher stood, on the roof, in a metal contraption which looked like a cross between a torpedo and an "iron maiden" it had slits at "eye" level, so you could see out. it was not very big, about big enough to take one person.

Follow the link to what your grandpa stood in during the war. It is a video of the actual firewatchers 'torpedo' he stood in. Sadley the building was knocked down years ago.
