What was the apparition I saw as a child?
As a young child I woke up in the middle of night and found a man in red and white pyjamas standing at the end of my bed. He wasn't anyone I knew, I shouted out loud and he started crying and then disappeared.
This is a well known, and there a lot of cases like this where people wake up and see an old woman or old man at the end of the bed. It has been put down to something psychological, almost like a waking dream. It is the kind of thing that we would like to get photos of, because then we would be more likely to believe it, although ghosts are very difficult to photograph.
