Denis Kelly

Wireless Operator Denis Kelly enlisted in the RAAF in 1942. Trained as a Wireless Operator/Air Gunner he was posted to England and flew in Lancasters with 467 Squadron RAAF.

His aircraft was shot down by a German night fighter with upward firing ‘Schrage Musik’ cannon. Les tells the story in this excerpt from an interview by Keith Webb for the Temora Aviation Museum’s Unsung Heroes project.

Denis evaded capture and finished the war with the rank of Flying Officer.

He passed away in September 2019.

Lest we forget.
