The pictures are from former Hayes resident, Derek King in Australia who
writes:


"The Zep landed at Handworth airfield (in 1932) . That airfield is now part
of Heathrow So my Father says. He was with the St Anselms Scouts and is the
Scout in the centre of the picture showing the body of the Zep. At the risk
of repeating myself the Capt of the ship was Herr Exner.


There was another pic of the Scouts with the King but that was lost by a
local newspaper in Suffolk ,where my parents now live, when they did an
article about the event.


Will ask the folks what else they have in the old Photo Albums that might be
of interest."

I have just found the original much higher resolution copy of this and uploaded that to replace the file that was here, so if you've looked before.... look again!
