31st May 2015 is the centenary of the first Zeppelin raid on London in WW1.

For those of you interested, I will be giving a talk for the National Army Museum - at the Army & Navy Club, Pall Mall, London - at 12.30pm on Thursday 28th May as part of the NAM's Lunchtime Lecture series. Not a great time for most but I'm afraid that's what it is!

The talk is called "The Germans Are Here": 31st May 1915 - London's first Zeppelin Raid.

Tickets are Free but you must book in advance as there are a set number of seats. Details are here:

For those who are interested - the talk I gave on London's First Zeppelin Raid at the National Archives in Kew in May is now available on the National Archives website as a podcast. Obviously you don't get to see the all slides and animated maps but you can hear the talk!

Great stuff! This is a really vivid and gripping presentation, even without visual aids. I think the volume of the recording is a bit too low on the podcast, but this is a minor technical quibble.

Hello Ian,

I want to congratulate you with your talk on the first London Zeppelin Raid. It is almost a minute to minute account of the attack. Interesting what happened during the bombardment and how the people experienced it. Sad to hear the stories about the losses.

It fascinated me from the beginning till the end.

Regards,

Jos

Thanks Jos - yes, I put a lot of work into it. A pity you couldn't see it with all the slides and animated maps of the bombs dropping!!
