In 1946, Underwood’s son Christopher is born,
followed by his daughter Pamela,
Christopher and Pamela feed pigeons in Trafalgar Square in London.
1946 is also the year
that Harry Price publishes
The End of Borley Rectory
Borley Rectory had become famous
in the wake of Price’s previous work devoted to it:
The Most Haunted House in England
It caught fire in 1939,
and was demolished in 1944.
“As is well known
the fire that destroyed the Rectory was,
more or less, predicted by planchette...”
Price spent many years investigating
the many strange phenomena reported there.
He even published a ‘Blue Book’ of instructions
for observers to use when visiting the Rectory.
Underwood begins making reports
of his own investigations
some of which he sends to Price...
“I became deeply involved in the Borley haunting…”
“...at this stage
...the reputed ghost nun
was thought to be named ‘Marie Lairre’…”
No Common Task
Underwood begins making plans
to pay a visit to former site
of the Rectory...
