HC Deb 24 October 1916 vol 86 cc969-70W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that a British airship's sudden appearance over parts of South Wales on Monday night created a good deal of excitsment that would have been avoided had any warning been given, even by a brief notice in the newspapers as had been the practice in London; and whether he will direct the officials responsible for these flights by British airships to give warning, whenever possible, of such proposed visits?


Airships were over South Wales during Monday, the 16th October, but returned to their base in daylight. No reports have been received indicating that any alarm was caused.
