Cadets have had fun creating model air craft as part of a First World War project.

Youngsters from Lynn’s 42nd Squadron have been working with King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Archaeological Society on a project aimed at school children.

With the 100th anniversary of the Zeppelin raid on Lynn approaching, the society is hoping to highlight the tragedy to children using air craft models and maps of the town.

Air cadets have been busy building the models of the Zeppelins during their meetings along with a session in True’s Yard Fisherfolk Museum, in Lynn, on Saturday.

Youngsters have also been creating models of some of the air craft which had been based in West Norfolk during the First World War.

Society chairman Clive Bond said the air cadets have also been researching these planes.

Mr Bond added that the model will be aimed at primary and secondary school children.

He said: “The models of the Zeppelins will be used along with newspaper reports and eye witness accounts to 
recreate the January 19, 1915 raid.”

The cadets have also been working with the society to complete a field walk around a former air base in Tydd St Mary, near Wisbech.

Further explorations are planned at the Narborough and Marham airfields.
