1978, GUAM, TWO SAILORS:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A text on the web by one Mark Kinkade tells about folklore and legends on the island of Guam in the Pacific. It says one Jireena Blas, a customer service assistant at the War in the Pacific Memorial in Hagatna, said the "White Lady" was seen by locals and military people alike. It says that in 1978, two sailors in town for shore leave parked their Volkswagen van near a bridge and saw what they described as a "bride" walking near them.

When they returned from a family picnic, they drove past the "White Lady" who stepped aside. Looking back, they noticed she was gone. When they parked the car later, they saw a series of scratches on the side of the car, like someone had run their nails along the paint. There were scratches on the passenger side window glass also, "but you couldn't feel them with your hands. There were marks, but no depressions."

The story then appeared in a "humanoid encounters" ufology catalogue.

Narratives:

[Ref. mk1:] MARK KINKADE:

Jireena Blas, a customer service assistant at the War in the Pacific Memorial in Hagatna, said the White Lady has been seen by locals and military people alike. In 1978, two sailors in town for shore leave parked their Volkswagen van near a bridge and saw what they described as a "bride" walking near them. When they returned from a family picnic, they drove past the White Lady who stepped aside. Looking back, they noticed she was gone. When they parked the car later, they saw a series of scratches on the side of the car, like someone had run their nails along the paint.

"The weird thing was," Bias said, "there were scratches on the (passenger side window) glass also, but you couldn't feel them with your hands. There were marks, but no depressions."

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near Hagatna, Guam, in 1978, at night, two sailors in town for shore leave parked their Volkswagen van near a bridge and saw what they described as a "bride" walking near them. When they returned from a family picnic, they drove past the white lady who stepped aside. Looking back, they noticed she was gone. When they parked the car later, they saw a series of scratches on the side of the car, like someone had run their nails along the paint. "The weird thing was, there were scratches on the passenger side window glass also, but you couldn't feel them with your hands." There were marks but no depressions.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Jireena Blas, The Spirits of Guam."
