KELLY, EFFICIENCY MEDAL, G. 1ST ISSUE, UNION OF SOUTH AFRICA NO. London Gazette 1 January 1944. The original recommendation states. Kelly started as a Charter Pilot and qualified as an Instructor in 1937. Since then he has been employed on instruction, with the exception of a period when he served as an Operational Pilot in. Both as an Instructor and as an Operational Pilot he has shown undoubted ability. His devotion to duty has at all times been worthy of mention. Edward James Kelly was born in.

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 the morning of 6 April 1941, the mountains lay clear. No storms raged in the passes as the bombers and their escort passed over to their targets. There were 22 attacking aircraft. The first wave of attackers, led by Captain E. Kelly, took off from Jijigga at 06:40 hours, followed ten minutes later by the second wave; each aircraft carried 52 20-pound fragmentation bombs. 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.

They were only reequipped with more modern Tomahawks in mid 1941. In June 1941 as an Instructor at 23 and 27 Air Schools, Kelly subsequently served as Chief Flying Instructor at the Empire Central Flying School, U.
