British Zeppelin Syndicate

From Graces Guide

The syndicate was formed by several organisations, including some shipping companies, concerned at the potential loss of passenger trade to the Zeppelin airships[1]. Harold Vezey Strong was chairman. The study was sponsored by Admiral Sir Reginald Hall, with the approval of Mr Neville Chamberlain, in collaboration with Dr. Eckener[2]

1937 Proposals were made (to the Air Ministry) for obtaining 2 airships from Germany and operating routes to Montreal and Karachi, where bases had already been established (for use by the R100 and R101).
