Recently, my husband Mike told me about a vivid dream he’d had. We were both being chased through a forest by some soldiers. He recalled that we were travelling quite a distance between two villages called Haxby and Stockton on the Forest in North Yorkshire. When the soldiers were nearly upon us we were taken up into the sky to another forest with our own soldiers. We were dressed in white but some were dressed in black, but were of our own tribe.
When we researched this, we discovered it was during the reign of King George III around the time of the French Revolution. The King’s soldiers had been commandeering farmland in North Yorkshire.
After carrying out further research for any corroborating evidence the following information was found:
Army on Manoeuvres
Location: Stockton on the Forest (Yorkshire) - Skies above area
Type: Environmental Manifestation
Date / Time: 13 January 1792
Further Comments: Several people reported seeing a forest in the sky, with soldiers in black uniforms moving around in formation. More soldiers wore white clothing, but appeared to be allied to the other troops, rather than in conflict.
"STOCKTON ON THE FOREST, a parish in the wapentake of Bulmer, a part in the liberty St. Peter's; 4 miles NE. of York. On the 13th of January, 1792, a meteorous appearance was observed on the forest, near this village, (by several persons of credit and respectability,) resembling a large army, in separate divisions, some in black and others in white uniforms; one of these divisions formed a line that appeared near a mile in extent, in the midst of which appeared a number of fir trees, which seemed to move along with the line. These aerial troops moved in different directions, and sometimes with amazing rapidity.
The French Revolution of 1789, in which the French monarchy had been overthrown, worried many British landowners. France declared war on Great Britain in 1793; in the war attempt, George allowed Pitt to increase taxes and raise armies.
