20 December

This plaque is hidden away on an office wall around the corner from where I work in Farringdon -

The most successful Zeppelin raid on London in the entire war was on the 8th of September 1915. This raid caused more than half a million pounds of damage, almost all of it from the one Zeppelin, the L13, which managed to bomb central London. This single raid caused more than half the material damage caused by all the raids against Britain in 1915.

Incredible how often that city has come back again and again.
