London.— The Zeppelin L-20 has
been completely destroyed and driven
ashore on the western side of Hafso
Firth, Norway, according to advices
Some of the crew were rescued. It
is said the Zeppelin is the twenty-fifth
lost since the war began.
The Zeppelin L-20 passed north of
Sandnaes alxiut 10 o’clock in the morn
ing, says a Reuter dspatch from Sta
vanger. She was flying at a low alti
tude and was in a damaged condition.
Five or six men were seen to jump
from the airship. Boats put out to
their assistance, and the commander
and one seaman were rescued and
taken to a hospital.
The Zeppelin then was driven over
the hilltops against a hillside. Its af
ter-body broke in two and part o f it
fell to the ground. Some of the crew
jumped or were hurled out.
The Zeppelin then rose a little and
was driven westward, but the bag of
the dirigible collapsed in the center
and tljp airship descended rapidly.
A torpedo-boat which had been fol
lowing along the coast went to its as
sistance and rescued three men still
in the cabin. A fourth man had jump
ed out shortly before.
Of the rescued men three officers
and two non-commissioned officers
were brought ashore; the whereabouts
of the rest of the crew is not known.
The Zeppelin was destroyed and
driven ashore on the western side of
the Firth, near its outlet to the sea.
The Zeppelin air raid on the north
east coast of ■ England and southeast
coast o f Scotland Thursday resulted
in 36 casualties. This announcement
was made officially.
