Wednesday 20th January 1915: Last night the German airships known as Zeppelins bombed the
towns of Great Yarmouth and King’s Lynn. These
silver monsters appeared over the coast under cover of darkness. Eleven bombs
are reported to have fallen on King’s Lynn,
doing considerable damage. Worse, two people were killed in Bentinck Street. The enemy has reached a
new low by thus killing innocent civilians in their own homes.
