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.



It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

Haha, thats not a ghost, its a man, probably working.
That is not the light of a torch and that is not that old a ship.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

If ghosts are 'dead people', how can it have an axe? Axe's dont die and become ghost axes now do they :lol:

Yes you are right. that does not look like a old ship or even a military ship for that matter.  Lots of wood panels and what appears to be aluminum trim.  I am guessing it is a larger pleasure vessel and not a very ancient one at that.
