'"These Gaseous Monsters” – Voices from the Zeppelin War' by Ian Castle
17 Apr

Utilising numerous first-hand accounts, Ian explores the experiences of those caught up in this forgotten Blitz, when Zeppelin raiders brought a new terror to Britain from out of the dark night skies.

Members of The Western Front Association and non-members are equally welcome. We ask for a modest £3 donation on the door.  This includes tea, coffee and biscuits at the break (before the Q&A session with the speaker). There is a book raffle and books about the Great War are usually available for sale.

New visitors will be assured of a welcoming and friendly atmosphere among a group of like-minded enthusiasts.

The meeting starts at 7.45pm.  Doors open at 7:15pm.  Come early to browse the books for sale and to chat about the Great War with other attendees.

The image shows damage to a terraced house in Beech House Road, Croydon. Five Zeppelins raided London on 13 - 14 October 1915.
