Well, I spent a weekend caving in the Mendips, South West England. One particular cave has a hall called GB. It is not particularly deep but it is
a large cavern nevertheless. Anyway. the group that I was with decided that they wanted to follow one of the passageways atop a small cliff. I was
in a rather strange mood that day and had not enthusiasm for climbing, so I elected to remain on the hall floor.
After about 10 minutes of their departure, I could no longer hear them or see thier lamps. I decided to extinguish my own and sit in silence until
they returned. It was, I imagine, after about 30 seconds, I started to hear movement and whispered voices from all around me. Thinking that a couple
of members had stayed to play around with me, I switched my lamp on. The sounds immediately stopped. There was no sign of anyone, even after
Each time I switched the lamp off, within about 30 seconds, the sounds returned. I left the lamp off in the end, to see if I could make sense of the
whispers, which I never did.
Finally, the sounds ceased when the first signs of the team returning could be made out.
Needless to say, I was somewhat shaken by those events, but dare not tell the others.
So, I suppose that is my answer to your OP. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.
