303 Squadron Memorial for W/Cdr. Ronald Kellett At the end of August 2014 a new Memorial to W/Cdr. Ronald Kellett and 303 Squadron will be held in Kent. Former 303 Squadron members/relatives of aircrew and groundcrew are invited in the first instance to contact us. We will forward your details to W/Cdr. Kellett's daughter for a formal invitation.
We fought together through the great offensive of 1940 and I then knew that the pilots of No. 303 Squadron were not only the best but would also see me through any troubles. In the month of September, 303 Squadron was on top - no squadron from the Empire could equal the courage and skill of our pilots, no bombing could daunt our airmen.” Sq/Ldr Ronald Kellett 303 Squadron Chronicles.
