The Diary of Dorothy Priest, November 25th 1914

25th November 2014 By Nicola Gauld

Our men have made a successful air raid on Zeebrugge, a German North Sea naval base or something and I think smashed it up.  We are doing well all round.  The Red Cross exam was today at 6.30.  It might have been worse, but it was not over nice.  Anyway it is over, all but the result.
