    Default Sgt G E Kelly

    Hello all,

    A couple of years ago a friend of mine who owns a skip business found photos and a letter to the mother of a pilot, Sgt. George Eugene Kelly 1375740, amongst other items from a house clearance.
    I have been trying to find some info on Sgt Kelly but have so far drawn a blank. The letter, dated June 6th 1943, is from RAF Lossiemouth and states that Sgt Kelly was 'killed in a flying accident on this unit on 21st September 1941'.
    It seems a bit odd that the letter tells Mrs Kelly about her son's death nearly two years after it happened.
    In September 1941 20 OTU were resident at Lossiemouth but several squadrons were on detachment there. There is no squadron/unit mentioned on Sgt Kelly's CWGC entry.
    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Jim.
