History note

Zeppelin L33 was damaged and force-landed at Little Wigborough on 24/Sep/1916. Despite being set alight, as much of the gas had already escaped, it was not badly damaged and was the first significantly intact Zeppelin to fall on British soil.

Physical description

Ashtray, formed from aluminium in the shape of a dragon curled around the horseshoe, bearing the legend: "Made from piece of Zeppelin L.33, Little Wigborough, 24.9.16"
