Most people associate The Blitz with World War Two, but the first airborne terror campaign in Britain took place during the First World War.
At that time Mayflower Primary was called Upper North Street School. On the 13th June 1917 the school was bombed from the air by a German plane called a Gotha. This was the first incidence of civilians being targeted in this or any other war.
