Notes:

 

1. Latitude/longitude, including for days in port, were computed by the climate science project as being the most representative location for each day. As such, they typically differ by varying amounts from the locations recorded in the log pages. Refer to the log scan pages for the positions as originally recorded.

 

2. Full account of any day is available by clicking on the link above that day. Groups of links refer to log book covers and introductory information; some may be blank.

11.50pm: Zeppelin raid

 

On [25 September] 1916 Commander Heinrich Mathy and his crew climbed into the gondola of Zeppelin L31 and weighed off, heading for England.

[Mathy's] main target was London, but he concluded that an attack on the heavily-defended capital would be difficult because of the clear weather.

Instead he decided they would bomb the Dockyard at Portsmouth where, as Mathy pointed out to his crew, ‘nobody has ever visited and it is sure to be very interesting’.

Mathy attacked from the south. One of his crew members recorded: ‘Dozens of searchlight clusters find us and fix on us. An unearthly concert is unleashed conducted by Satan himself’, probably referring to anti-aircraft fire from Point battery and Whale Island as L31 came over the harbour.

A heavy bomb load of 8,125lb was dropped and Mathy, blinded by the searchlight, reported that 'all bombs has [sic] fallen on the city and the Dockyard'. However, the bombs appear to have fallen harmlessly into the harbour....
