Binoculars from a Zeppelin L31

In a Crumpled State.

by Mr Jones

Located in the IWM (in a glass case). These binoculars were salvaged from a Zeppelin Airship (L31), which was the third to be shot down over England (Potters Bar) during W.W.1 and killing all of its crew. It crashed onto an oak tree, in Oaksmere Park, but the tree then known as the 'Zep Tree', was too badly damaged and finally cut down in 1930. The Commander of the ship, Heinrich Mathy, previously stated, that "It is only a question of time before we join the others'.
