Zeppelin L31 and Potters Bar.
« on: July 19, 2007, 10:03:27 am »
My name is Ray Rimell and I am writing a new book on the Potters Bar Zeppelin.I would like to hear from any one in the area with momentos,postcards,photos,clippings,etc., relating to the night in October 1916 when L31 was shot down on Oakmere by Wulstan Tempest.I will send a free signed copy of my book on Leefe Robinson -The Airship VC-to anyone who can supply me with material.
Thanks very much,
Ray Rimell.

Hi Ray,

Welcome to the forum.

I suppose you have seen the references to the Zeppelin that are already on the site.

Zeppelin brought down over Potters Bar

and

During the Great War

Thanks for the replies,Dave and Bob.I did see the excellant material which prompted me to make this appeal on the site.
Have been to the  museum several times and found everyone there helpful and encouraging.It's quite a story and I have already  found some fascinating aspects that have not been touched on before.Still searching..
Best wishes ,
Ray.

yes its an interesting story when you consider that Wulstan also had a brother Edmund (born too in Pontefract) who served with 64 Squadron (in SE5s), got his MC and DFC in France and while serving under Hugh Trenchard before he bought Abdale House in Warrengate Road.
Apart from L31 coming down at PB on 2 Oct 1916, L32 had been brought down at Billericay on the 24 Sept by Sowrey, SL11 at Cuffley on 3 Sept, all coming in southwest fro Germany against westerly winds that pushed them away from London
Good luck on your research
