The Daily Mail’s Zeppelin Insurance

Daily Mail Zelleplin Fund PosterHere are a few posters distributed by Great Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper regarding compensation from German zeppelin attacks on London in what can be construed as the First Battle of Britain during WWI.

The first, above, describes a ‘Zeppelin Fund’ for people and property that might suffer pain, damage, or death.

It is, in fact, Zeppelin insurance.

The poster below, well, that one tells you what the Zeppelin Fund payouts will be should you suffer from an attack.

The third poster below – well, I’m unsure who created this, but it provides a handy-dandy easy-peasy way for people to identify the enemy aircraft via silhouette, so that they can report it to the authorities – just make sure you aren’t seeing one of the British aircraft!
