Nick Livingstone

A blue plaque has been unveiled at the former home of Captain Frank Barnwell, designer of many Bristol aircraft from the start of the first world war to just before the start of the second. Barnwell joined the British and Colonial Aeroplane Company at Filton in 1911, and designed the Bristol Scout (1914), Bristol Fighter, Bristol Bulldog and Bristol Blenheim.
