Zepplin Raid on Kings Lynn
A excellent piece of reseach by WNKLAS society member Louisa's Rooks, which examines the detailed timeline for the raid on King's Lynn on 19th January 1915. In addition there are a number of archive photos from local papers of the time that describe the people and events of that fateful day.
The article is very useful in exploring the detailed chronology of the raid and the great part that chance played in the events of that day.A map of the raid can also be found on the Gorleston & Great Yarmouth History website Here
Attached is a report by Alexandra Lee (Lally), Society Member on the study of the shrapnel cross, made from zeppelin bomb fragments, dropped on Lynn on 19th Jan 1915. Lally went to Lynn Museum and studied the artefact, a sort of 'trench art' piece and researched the history. Text and images of the shrapnel piece and wood panel are attached.
The primary research at for the cross was carried out at the local Norfolk Museum Service Museum
