It is remarkable that a technically-minded Roman Catholic RAF fighter pilot, who studied physics at Scotland's oldest university and became a physical education teacher after the war, should find himself in close contact with a traditional witchcraft coven as early as 1942. This was outrageous and dangerous. The Witchcraft Act was t repealed until almost ten years later and the Old Religion, the pre-Christian religion of North-West Europe, was still banned. Yet, Bill Love (that's his real name) remained firmly attached to the concept of living in harmony with nature, and in 1953, he asked to join such a coven. The High Priestess, who initiated him, had herself been drawn into The Craft during the 1920s and often told stories of older members with memories going back to the end of the 19th century. So, Love's story has ancient roots with passed-on memories from a time when everything connected to this way of life was very much against the law. Love learned to live in harmony with nature from the experience of doing what these elders taught him and, in addition to this, during the 1950s, he met many of the famous people who first brought this innate way of life to the public's attention. This provided him with unique opportunities of following roots into spheres, which many modern practitioners of Wicca can only dream about.
JAK P. MALLMANN SHOWELL's first book, U-boats under the Swastika, is one of the longest selling naval books in Germany and his second, The German Navy in World War Two, was named as one of the outstanding books of the year. Ten years ago he became involved in a series of supernatural experiences and has been studying these ever since. Not wanting to believe anything written in books, he started attending courses and working with experts such as hypnotherapists, semi-professional dowsers and Buddhist monks. In addition to this he has conducted his own research by devising a large number of fascinating experiments to investigate all manner of strange occurrences. TONI HUGHES has a university degree in environmental sciences and has been the High Priestess of Bill Love's Wicca coven for twenty years.
