Aviation Development and the Airship Threat

These resources are designed to complement a visit to The Bastion in the Air exhibition hosted at The Collection Museum in Lincoln.

Their aim is to share the story about aviation and airships in the First World War, to work with the exhibition’s time line to explore the British response to air attack and to find out about the First World War from the individual story of William Leefe Robinson.
