Was involved in the attacks on the remaining elements of the Italian Air Force, taking part in the raid on the Italian stronghold of Dessie on 6 April 1941. The Italians had been retreating to Dessie, to the north of Addis Ababa, through country where just a single road cut through solid mountain, reaching 11,000 feet high at Mussolini Pass. No landing ground could be found in this area, and the nearest at Combolchia was still in Italian hands and nearly 250 miles from the capital. Dessie had been the scene of considerable military activity since the fall of the capital. The Duke of Aostas forces were using it as a base to prepare the last bastion to the north- Amba Alagis solitary heights where the Viceroy was to make his last stand.

On arrival over Combolchia aerodrome the leader of the first wave, Kelly, observed an enemy fighter landing and two more about to take off. Although it was five minutes before the time ordered for the attack he dived down, destroyed the aircraft landing, and damaged the other two.
