The SL 11 was based at Spich and commanded by Hauptmann Wilhelm Schramm . In the early hours of 3 September 1916, after bombing Saint Albans, it was attacked over Hertfordshire by Lt. William Leefe Robinson flying a BE 2C using incendiary ammunition. It crashed at Cuffley, killing the entire crew, who were buried at Potters Bar Cemetery; they were re-interred at Cannock Chase German Military Cemetery during 1962. Robinson was awarded the Victoria Cross.
