Redland Station opened on April 12, 1897, on the Bristol Temple Meads-Avonmouth-Severn Beach line. Initially, 11 men were employed at the station but this was reduced to six at the time of this photograph. From December 1964 Redland became an unstaffed halt after 2pm and was totally unstaffed from July 17, 1967.

Field Marshall The Right Honourable The Viscount Slim (1891 - 1970) was born in Bishopston. He led the 14th Army in Burma against the Japanese in World War II - it was known as The Forgotten Army - and was later Governor of Australia (1953-1960). His book 'Defeat into Victory' (1956 and later editions) has to be one of the most readable and impressive records of war in the east. Viscount Slim was an outstanding field commander of the British Army

In John Keegan's book, "Churchill's Generals", Abacus 1999, William Slim is recorded as being born at 72, Belmont Road, Bishopston, August 6, 1891. He attended King Edward's School, Birmingham, in September 1908, before enrolling in Birmingham University OTC (1912).

After a distinguished military career from 1914 until 1949, he was appointed Chief of the Imperial General Staff shortly before his promotion to Field Marshal on January 4, 1949.

"Defeat into Victory" was a publishing sensation in 1956 when the first edition sold out within days. It was written by a modest man who attributed his success to others. He claimed that he had the good fortune to lead an exceptionally able team-the entire 14th Army.

Field Marshal Lord Slim was surely one of Bristol's finest!
