Zeppelin centenary preparations

Preparations are well under way for our commemoration of the centenary of the L21 Zeppelin raid on the South Bank area of York on 2 May 1916.  Year 7 have put together a display for the event at Clements Hall on 6 May.  They have researched the historical context to a series of images, traced the route of the Zeppelin on the 1908 map of the area and found images from The Mount’s archives of the girls memories.

There will be a live Twitter stream from @zeppelinWW1live.  We have also started a History Pin collection to mark the centenary at Zeppelin History Pin .  On 28th April students from The Mount and Millthorpe Schools will walk the route of the raid with members of Clements Hall Local History Group.  We will be remembering the casualties.  We will add the images and the story to our History Pin collection.
