Born in Alansford, near Warnambool, midfielder Bristow moved to Melbourne to start a teaching career. While playing casually for Carlton Juniors he was spotted by the real deal and joined the Blues during the 1910 season.

After two games with Carlton he left the club and joined Hastings. At the start of 1912 he transferred to Melbourne and played played one full season off the half-back line before being charged with assault after an alleged hit on Carlton's Challis in early 1913. The players threatened to boycott the next match over the incident but played when they were all threatened with life bans. He wasn't reported, but Bristow was later fined £5 in the Carlton Court for his indiscretion and moved to Richmond midway through the year.

He enlisted early in the First World War and served with distinction as part of the 6th Battalion, including at Gallipoli. He later fought in France, rose to the rank of Lieutenant and was awarded the Military Cross for bravery in 1917. He returned home in November 1918 and returned to school teaching after being discharged three months later.
