Duncan Ronald Gordon "Jock" Mackay lead the first and only bomb-raid on the german city Bonn (Rhineland) during WW1 on October 31st 1918. I live in Bonn and published an article on that air-raid, recently. Only 11 days after this first bomb-raid on Bonn, on November 11th, the day of the armistice, Mackay died, aged 23. Give Peace a Chance!
