This is Dundee's story of those that served in the First World War, and of the people left at home
3 September 1916
First German airship shot down to the north of London. 16 German airships set out to bomb the capital but only 2 came close to their target. At around 2:15 am pilot Lt. William Leefe Robinson (right) shot down one of the airships near Cuffley. The pieces of the airship were salvaged by the Red Cross to raise money for wounded soldiers.
