A ghostly soldier

In the second world war there was a gun emplacement which was hit by a German bomb, killing all of the three men manning it. It was nearly midnight when I wanted to take the dogs out for a short walk before bed.  I usually take them out and around the block but I thought I would take a different route and I took a left turn. A few yards later, a man riding a bike came out of the darkness towards me. I moved to the left of the path, but as he came closer I saw he had a tin hat on.  As he got to the lamp post I saw him much clearer. He was wearing an old army uniform and big heavy black boots.  He got past the lamp post and took a sharp left turn into the hedge and vanished right in front of my eyes. I was speechless and had to turn back.  I've never been down that path again!
