WW1 - Downed Zeppelins

 
 
Sept 24, 1916 saw the shooting down of two zeppelins in England. These were bombing zeppelins not observation zeppelins. The raid by the German airships was successful of sorts. This raid killed 40 wounded 130 in london. Shot down but crew managed to live. One of the captains asked the Dutch embassy if he could cable his wife to let her know he had survived but would be imprisoned.
