R34 (airship)
The R33 class of British rigid airships were built for the Royal Naval Air Service during the First World War, but were not completed until after the end of hostilities, by which time the RNAS had become part of the Royal Air Force. The lead ship, R33, went on to serve successfully for ten years and survived one of the most alarming and heroic incidents in airship history when she was torn from her mooring mast in a gale. She was called a "Pulham Pig" by the locals, as the blimps based there had been, and is immortalised in the village sign for Pulham St Mary. The only other airship in the class, R34, became the first aircraft to make an east to west crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in July 1919, and was decommissioned two years later after being damaged during a storm. The crew nicknamed her "Tiny".

In a recent clearout of my parent’s house, I was reacquainted with these old encyclopaedias, which my grandfather had bought as a set in 1919, just after World War One. Not surprisingly, much of the content relates to military advances made during the so-called Great War. I remember seeing these encyclopaedias as a child, my father having brought them home from his father's in the late 1950s. I can't recall him referring to them very often, but no doubt these dusty old volume’s would have been a much treasured items during the post-war period. This book fell open at this page, showing a superbly detailed drawing of British built airship R.34. The airship, one of the largest and most advanced of its time was built between 1917 and 1918.
