Oh my gosh, I stumbled on your talks on Youtube today and can hardly believe what I'm about to tell you.
I'm a house painter working in and around Tunbridge Wells in Kent, south east England. A few years ago I as painting the house of an elderly lady. During a tea break we touched on her army service and she told me that, during the second world war she was on leave and was at home in T-Wells. One particular day she went to the common with her husband and was sitting on a bench when they became aware of a shuffling noise behind them. Upon turning around both her husband and herself saw what she decribed as " a tall, hairy ape like creature with eyes that were "burning" had a redish colour" and it was moving towards them at a slow pace. They observed this creature for some time until they became afraid and they both fled - terrified.
She went on to say that they told the police and members of their family, thinking that a gorilla had escaped from a zoo but were laughed at and were not belived.
Now all this happned in WW2 and a very long time ago and I, like many others thought that she was obviously mistaken and, although curious,thought no more of it. Untill that is recently, when reading the Tunbridge Wells courier, a local newspaper, and in a tiny article on the 6th or 7th page, there was an account of a local man who was walking on the common, which is wooded and covered in bracken, when he stumbled upon what he decribed as "tall hairy apeman, with long arms and red, burning eyes"!
This article was brief and no other details were given. Coincidence? But your talk on Humanoids living in woods and forests has certainly given me food for thought.
