“A family group photo which includes my uncle, Arnold Sinclair Kelshall (on the right). My father, Philip Walter Kelshall is standing on the left. This photo would have been taken right after my father and uncle were demobilised, as I am the young lad in the photo, and I was born June 1944. Both my uncle Arnold and my dad were at Cambridge university studying law when the war broke out. They joined the Cambridge University Air Squadron initially. My dad went on to be an instructor at RAF Cranwell before joining the Mosquito squadron. My Dad stayed in aviation, he was a Captain at BWIA, in Trinidad, ended up as General Manager.”
