Margaret Johnson was my grandmother. She wrote poems and I have two that she wrote about the Battle of Zeebrugge. I have a book entitled "The Blocking of Zeebrugge" by Captain Alfred Carpenter V. C. This was passed down to me from my great great uncle. I also have some pieces from a Hun Gotha plane brought down off Margate 22/08/1917. I am trying to find out more about ML262 (motor launch) which was used in the laying of smoke screens.
