‘Ghost with axe’ spotted on old military ship will freak you out
A man clutching an axe inside an old military frigate doesn’t make for your typical ghost story, nor does it make typical fodder for an internet hoax.
But a photograph showing a ghostly figure with an axe in his hand aboard a decommissioned military vessel on a dry dock has gained a lot of traction on social media sites.
Stevgoldhound, who posted the picture on Imgur yesterday, claims it was taken by a colleague of his called John who works as a dock foreman.
John apparently took the picture while snapping work areas and navigating deep within the ship with a torch. He didn’t see anyone while taking the images.
Another user of the site cleaned up the image and came up with this. Creepy huh?

‘Due to the fact that it was a military vessel the police were called,’ Stevgoldhound wrote. ‘A search was carried out but no one was found. There was one way on and off the ship, and that was by a gangway covered by CCTV. (You couldn’t jump over the side as it was a 25 meter drop on to concrete).’
Stevgoldhound added: ‘I am a sceptic. Maybe its a trick of the flash reflecting off something, but if you really zoom in you can just make out the f—— face, ear, collar of his jacket and the f—– axe in a meaty f—— fist.
‘Now it could be John blowing smoke up my ass, but when he was telling the story he seemed genuinely rattled. And the guy in the pic looks nothing any of the other workers we met at the dock.’
What do you think? A ghost, someone who somehow snuck on the boat or something else?
