23 April 1915 – Weather saves Zeppelins. Again!

Following the aborted attack on the 20th by the HMS Empress on the wireless station at Norddeich and Zeppelin sheds at Norden, a further attempt was made today.

The HMS Empress was accompanied by the light cruisers HMS Arethusa and HMS Aurora Of the 5th Light Cruiser squadron of the Harwich force. Each carried a seaplane to supplement those in the Empress. The raid was foiled once again by bad weather as thick fog enveloped the enemy coast.
