23 January 1916 – Back Again

Barely 12 hours after the last raid, two German aircraft again attacked the Dover area. A Friedrichshafen FF 33b and a Hansa-Brandenburg NW, made a number of passes over the town without dropping any bombs, and were engaged by anti-aircraft fire. Eventually one aircraft dropped five bombs on the RNAS airship sheds at Capel-le-Ferne without causing any real damage.

Four RFC aircraft and a RNAS flying boat took off from Dover, but were unable to catch the raiders.
