This intriguing photo, taken in 1919, was first published in 1975 by Sir
Victor Goddard, a retired R.A.F. officer. The photo is a group portrait of
Goddard's squadron, which had served in World War I at the HMS Daedalus training
facility. An extra ghostly face appears in the photo. In back of the airman
positioned on the top row, fourth from the left, can clearly be seen the face of
another man. It is said to be the face of Freddy Jackson, an air mechanic who
had been accidentally killed by an airplane propeller two days earlier. His
funeral had taken place on the day this photograph was snapped. Members of the
squadron easily recognized the face as Jackson's. It has been suggested that
Jackson, unaware of his death, decided to show up for the group photo.
