THE LAST FLIGHT OF THE L32  

THE LAST FLIGHT OF THE L32


On 24 September 1916 the residents of Billericay and Great Burstead, Essex bore witness to the dramatic end of a German Zeppelin raider that crashed in flames on the fields of Snail's Hall Farm killing all aboard- including the vessel's  commander , Werner Peterson. Now this century -old event is re-visited by Ray Rimell in a brand new 24 page book to be published this September marking  the centenary. The author's detailed account has been based on eyewitness statements and with access to official records and family papers from the family of Freddie Sowrey who shot down L32 on that momentous night 100 years ago.With over 50 illustrations ,including a Ronny Bar colour profile of BE2c  4112, scale drawings by Mick Davis of the night-fighting BE2c version and detailed sketches of the Strange gun mounting, Ray's book covers the story of L32 in unprecedented detail. Limited to 1000 copies, all individually signed and numbered by the writer, limited numbers of advance publication copies are now available right here.
