On the early morning, around 0630, of 1 September 1916 five German aircraft bombed Port Said. This much is known.

They were, by default, from FA300 based at Beersheba, but probably flew from El Arish. Again, by default, they were probably Rumpler C.I aircraft.

I say ‘by default’ as FA300 was the only active German unit in Palestine at the time.

Any further details – pilots/observers, bomb loads, any damage to the aircraft, anything in fact, would be most welcome.
