The Explorers' Club, № DLIV

Operation AXIOM: The World War—The Gotha Raids, Part II
June-August 1917: Operation Türkenkreuz ("Turk's Cross")—The German daylight bombing campaign against London; the third raid (13 June) resulted in the highest number of casualties, one hundred sixty-two dead & four hundred thirty-two wounded, in part because due to the novelty of aeroplanes flying overhead civilians filed into the streets to see the show instead of seeking shelter.

Lest we forget.
