Driving Out Of Bristol

A Memory of Bristol

Centre of road, driving towards the camera in his brand new ivory Ford Consul Mk II reg. 441 AAE is my recently deceased father, Captain G.G.Liles of BOAC (ex-RAF).1920-2006.
We lived in Brislington from 1949-1958, until moving away to Hertfordshire.
He had initially flown on crew transport from Filton to Heathrow, but when that service was terminated he had to drive there & back before each flight abroad, which was pretty exhausting in his old Morris, hence the new car.

A memory shared by John Liles , on Sep 3rd, 2012.
