1915 June Footnotes

[1] Zeppelin L.10, commanded by Kapitänleutnant Klaus Hirsch, came inland between Grain and Eastchurch around 11.00pm on 4th June 1915. Hirsch mistakenly thought he attacked Harwich. Instead, four high explosive (HE) and 24 incendiary bombs fell on Sittingbourne and Milton Regis, the HE bombs falling in Jackson’s Field, St. Paul’s Street (near Pear Tree Alley), a field at Chilton Farm and on a garden wall between Unity Street and Park Road. The blast from this last bomb seriously damaged a number of houses and injured two people.
