William Guest Killed in enemy Zeppelin Raid
The raid occurred on the night of Monday 25th September 1916 when a single Zeppelin dropped 36 bombs in a line between Burngreave and through Attercliffe to Darnall. The Zeppelin in question was a German Naval Zeppelin L22 that was under the command of Kapitanleutnant Martin Dietrich
Woodbourne Hill saw the last casualty of the raid when William Guest, a Corporation wagon driver, was killed in the street by a bomb as he tried to warn the occupants of a house showing a light.

Many of Britain's leading armament and munitions firms were based in Sheffield; it was therefore a prime Zeppelin target. Indeed, Sheffield had been the intended target on previous raids, but on each occasion the attacking airships failed to find the city.
