|A Sopwith 2F.1, Camel flown by Flight Sub-Lieutenant Stuard D. Culley, lifts from a â€œLighterâ€
towed by the Royal Navy destroyer HMS Redoubt, on 10 August 1918, in the North Sea. This mission effectively ended the German Zeppelinsâ€™ harassment of the British Fleet. Culleyâ€™s unsuspecting target, the LZ.53 was the last Zeppelin destroyed in W.W.I. The returning Camel ditched along side the Redoubt, was recovered and survives today, hanging in the Imperial War Museum in London.
