That link says that the firs bombs dropped on the UK were in 1939; I take it that all of the bombs the Germans dropped from the Zeppelins in 1914-1918 actually went off then?

I didn’t think they did as i’m pretty sure that Yarmouth had complete examples of (hopefully) deactivated bombs in their museum, and I suspect that the casing would have burst had it have exploded.
