      This photo was taken in the Firth of Forth and shows the first landing of an airship aboard an aircraft carrier. The airship was flown from nearby RNAS East Fortune, where it was based. Furious and the British carriers were based at Rosyth, where the battlecruiser squadrons were stationed. I could be wrong, but I think notable photographer Alfred Buchan took this image.
