Bristol Blitz Casualties: Bristol Past : History of Bristol and the Fishponds area Various branches of my family were bombed out several times from Ashton Gate and Knowle. They lived in various temporary rented accommodation. Meanwhile one Uncle was in North Africa and one in Burma. Part of the family were moved from Swansea to Bristol as the father (an engineer) was needed at Filton. After the Bristol Blitz they went back to Swansea just in time to be bombed again in the Swansea Blitz.
