Air raid September 1940 at Filton

Air raid September 1940 at Filton

Back to the story

G1416. Large scale ordnance survey map which shows Bristol and the Great Western Railway line which passes to the right of Filton and would be a good reference for the German raiding aircraft. Once close to the target the notes they had would have defined their targets.
