I'm trying to find dates/details on two air raids made by zeppelins in 1916, and I often come across mention that there were 159 Zeppelin attacks on England during the first world war.
I'm assuming that there must be a grand list somewhere, but have no idea of where to find it.
Does anyone know of such a thing online or in a book?
If not, the two raids I'm trying to find details of are:
A raid on Harwich some time between July and November 1916 which my great great uncle saw from Felixstowe Army Barracks:
"While training in Felixstowe, there was a zeppelin raid over Harwich and it was a most thrilling sight to watch - all of the searchlights shining up this huge aircraft, and the shells bursting in the air as they were shelling from the batteries at Landguard forts. We thought the zep was hit and been brought down, but she recovered from a possible slight damage, and flew away. It was a most interesting sight, and one I shall never forget."
A zeppelin in the sky over Norfolk (near Hethersett) on the night of 15 August 1916, the night my grandfather was born:
"According to mother that evening the zeppelins were roaming over Norfolk. You could hear the throbbing of the engines as they were passing overhead. And also there was a particularly good warning, in that there was a local bull that disliked the sound of the engines, and so it spent it's time roaring at the same time. At least that's the story."
I'd be incredibly grateful if anyone could help me to fill in the blanks.
