The raid is not listed in The Air Defence of Britain 1914-1918 by Cole & Cheesman, the definitive work on the subject, so a false alarm.
There is a photo of Sub Lt Horace A Buss, later Squadron Leader Buss OBE DSC @ http://www.kenthistoryforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=3205.0
Thanks for the information. His aircraft was an Avro 504B and my father was his passenger.

On the 21st of June 1915 Sub Lt. H A Buss, RNAS flew to Canterbury to intercept "a reported hostile aeroplane".
Does anyone have any further information on this subject please?
