This postcard was produced after the War to show where the 184 bombs and 23 shells landed on Dover during the First World War.

4DOV - Bomb Location

The bombs would have been from both Zeppelins and aeroplanes and include the location of the first bomb to fall from an aerial attack on British soil- St James’s Church on Christmas Eve 1914. The shells which landed would have been fired from the sea when Dover was shelled by the German Navy.
