142FAV - Faversham raid souvenir

141FAV - German Incendiary Bomb

140FAV - German Incendiary Bomb

This particular air raid was the first sortie against England by a German army aeroplane. (There had been previous aeroplane raids on England but they were made by German navy aeroplanes). As the ‘Faversham Raid Postcard’ (142FAV) states: there were no casualties – other than, perhaps, a bird.

The writing on the front of ‘Faversham Raid Postcard 2’ reads: German incendiary bomb dropped at Faversham .ap.16.1915 near the 12th Lancs Battery stables at the Mount Hospital
