My father (George Kelsey) wrote the history of 151 Squadron a number of years ago. He produced a number of copies but could not get a publisher to produce it.

My father passed away on 12 July 2013, this web site is in memory of a great dad. Rest in Peace.

Thanks to 29(R) Squadron from RAF Conningsby for providing a flypast at the funeral. Big thank you to Jamie 'Noz' Norris and Noel Rees, Typhoon display pilots, and to Sqdr. Ldr Chris Hoyle.
