John Judge is a member of Birmingham UFO Group and a personal friend of mine. He was born in 1951, and has accomplished much throughout his life including becoming a body builder and author, and achieving the highly renowned rank of Master in Karate.
At the age of 23 John moved to Margate in Kent with his first wife, Lynne. It is here that a number of fascinating experiences began, including UFO sightings and being visitations. He has also experienced a number of paranormal incidents as a child.
This case report is a long time in the making as I actually began to document John’s case back in 2018. We had started speaking of his experiences in depth, and were in the early stages of planning this report. In June 2018 we both attended the Awakening UFO conference at Manchester. John won two tickets for it at one of our group meetings and very kindly offered me one of them.
But then disaster struck! Soon after we attended the conference, John was involved in a serious motorbike accident which almost cost him his life. Over the last two and a half years he has undergone a slow course of rehabilitation. He has sadly lost the use of most of his limbs, but has bravely carried on and made the best of this awful situation.
Unlike the majority of the cases I investigate, John took the time to write out details of most of his experiences in substantial depth. He also provided me with many maps and drawings to include. Throughout this report, many of the incidents begin with John’s written statement, which is then followed by additional information and comments from myself.
Vision of the Fire
The earliest experience which John can recollect occurred when he was quite a young age, perhaps three or four. His grandmother lived in Nechells at the time. His grandfather had sadly already passed away. Sometimes he would sleep overnight at his grandmother’s house.
The mattress on the bed had not been changed in a while and was a little concave. John remembers lying awake in bed on his front and having to push himself up a bit to climb out of the depression. When he did so he looked over to his left towards the window.
In front of the window was a chest of drawers with two long candles in candlesticks. There was quite a lot of light coming through the closed curtains into the room. All of a sudden he saw the vision of burning flames appear between the candlesticks! He then saw two men holding hoses and running around back and forth. He was too young to understand that these men were firemen trying to put the fire out.
