Flight Lieutenant 'Uncle' Kellaway is the Adjutant for Hornet Squadron in Piece of Cake and A Good Clean Fight.

Early LifeEdit

Very little is known about Kellaway's early life, apart from the fact that he was cared for by a nanny, who advised him to disguise mistakes in a drawing by turning them into a cloud, or a tree.

World War OneEdit

Kellaway served as a fighter pilot with the Royal Flying Corps.

World War TwoEdit

Piece of CakeEdit

The NovelEdit

Kellaway first appears in the flashback to The Ram's return from sick leave in the third week of August, when Ramsey orders Kellaway to recall all the pilots from leave - a process that takes three days. [3]

While the pilots were taking part in a cross country run, Kellaway discussed the First World War with the sergeant of police, [4] before organising a rugby match with the Fairey Battle squadron that shared the airfield, and supervising the digging of slit trenches near dispersal, while The Ram led the pilots on a battle climb.[N 2]

Following Ramsey's death, Kellaway cancelled the rugby match, before informing the Air Ministry of Hornet Squadron's need for a new CO. [6]

The miniseriesEdit

Kellaway is first seen noting the finishing times of the pilots taking part in a cross country run.[7]

While Hornet Squadron were in France, Kellaway demonstrated his ability to identify each pilot by their take off style to Skull. [8]

A Good Clean FightEdit

By 1942, Kellaway and Hornet Squadron were in North Africa
