Re: First night "kill"

Hello all,
according to the book "Geschichte der deutschen Nachtjagd" by Gebhard Aders, the first night kill was achieved in the night 10/11. February 1917 by Leutnant Peters and Frowein in a DFW C.V, when they shot down 2 landing bombers at the airfield Malzeville.
First kill of a Zeppelin was on 8. June 1915 by Flight-Sub-Lt R.A.J. Warneford with a Morane Saulnier L, shooting down LZ 37 above Gent.
Best wishes
