Hi all,

I bought today a German propaganda postcard showing a British airship dropping down water ballast and climbing in clouds followed by a Dutch airship.

The postcard describes the picture as follows:

"Flucht des Englischen Luftschiffes in die Wolken vor dem Holländischen Lenkballon "Marcay" über dem Ärmelkanal."

"Escape of the English airship in the clouds pursued by the Dutch Led Ballon "Marcay" over the channel."

The date of the stamp at the postcard is not precise to identidy (December ?** 1914??)

I know only the Dutch Army airship "Duindigt" (1911). Is somebody knowing about such an incident in WWI?
