Lewisham Zeppelin raid appeal

Below is the text of a letter from the FOBLC published in the Wednesday December 15th issue Lewisham Mercury

Dear Editor,

Following the successful 'Up the Line' remembrance event in Brockley & Ladywell Cemetery ( Thursday 11th November), friends of the cemetery expressed an interest in restoring the broken memorial to the civilian victims of the Zeppelin raid on Lewisham( 17/20 th October 1917). This lies next to the heroes corner monument on the Ladywell side. The seperate Deptford memorial in the cemetery was a prominent feature in this years programme.If any of your readers has any information or family links to those killed and injured in this raid and whose names are on the Lewisham Council Archives webpage, we would be very appreciative if they could contact

Yours Sincerely

Mike Guilfoyle
