The first enemy air raids on England during the First World War were carried out by Zeppelin airships in January 1915. Civilians in Britain, for the first time, were on the firing line. And, the residents and workers of Islington and Finsbury were not to escape from these ‘terror’ attacks.
Islington was to feature in the first and final raids on London. These attacks and more will be recounted by Ian Castle, a leading expert on the history of Germany’s First World War aerial campaign against Britain.
