The Angry Ghost of Cuballing Tavern: Cuballing W.A
« on: January 08, 2018, 04:54:57 PM »
Whats a pub without a ghost or two?

It seems every historic pub in Australia has an alleged ghost. The Pubs in WA are no exception. Out in the wheat belt town of Cuballing there is pub with such a haunting.

The ghost of Ted Leighton is said to make his appearance in winter and to cause trouble if ever any part of the hotel is changed or modified. Ted lived in the area and was yardman at the hotel before he died. Strange occurrences like gas bottles being turned on, kegs rolling around, doors slamming and the ice machine being turned off are attributed to Ted's ghost.

Is Ted angry because hes dead? or was it some thing far deeper....

To be continued.....

Researching a little deeper into history.  The following newspaper The West Australian (Perth, WA : 1879 - 1954)

Nurse Leighton, Mr. Max Leighton and Mrs.G. P. Wright wish to express their heartfelt THANKS to all kind friends for expressions of sympathy, telegrams, letters,and condolence cards in their great sorrow in the loss of a beloved son and brother, Corporal Leslie T. Leighton.

Did the ghost of Corporal Leslie T. Leighton killed on battle field in France returned home with fellow soldiers not quite understanding he is dead? Arrived back in Australia to his old life and job becoming frustrated that one no sees him.

It could be very easy to see a traumatized WW1 soldier with post traumatic experience and perhaps refusing to believe he is dead angry at seeing change at his old place of work. Maybe even angry that his life had been taken away from him so young? Or the simple fact no one notices him?

Was he the correct Ted Leighton? There does not seem to be any other records of this claimed Ted Leighton? Other than obituary of Corporal Leslie Ted Leighton?

The Cuballing tavern was built in 1912 2 years before the great war. It would easy how many young men sought to do their patriotic duty for the mother country at the time. Perhaps a strange situation...

Imagine going to war thinking you lived and returning home only to discover you are dead?

As reason to be angry would it not?

Geoff Hutchison of ABC Radio reported the following below...

Some of you will believe what you are about to read and hear, and some of you won't, because this is a story about ghosts.

For years locals in Cuballing have talked about the ghost of Ted Leighton, which is said to roam the Cuballing Tavern.

Ted was a local who worked as a yardman at the pub before he died.

A paranormal investigator claims to have not only communicated with Ted but actually recorded his voice.

Jody Turner has spent two years analysing paranormal activity at the tavern and says she has finally recorded Ted speaking.

In her recordings a male voice is heard saying 'yeah' in response to a question.

In another recording the same voice says "I'm coming over, it's me".

So is this really a voice from the other side?

Have a listen to Jody's interview and the voice she recorded and judge for yourself.


You can see the link below to hear the sound recording.

As always I leave it to you to decide....
