Clarification[edit]

The following comment was removed from the text:

There were two mistakes in this article. 1. he was born on 13th September 1909 not in November. And Secondly the person that won the De la Vaulx Medal by the FIA was Squadron Leader Richard Kellett and not Ronald Gustave Kellett. I have corrected these errors. Source Ronald's daughter, Louise Pemberton.

Are Ronald and Richard related? Was Ronald born in England or New Zealand? Drutt (talk) 19:38, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

I suspect he comes from Bishop Auckland which is in County Durham. Note that according to Peter Lewis's British Racing and Record Breaking Aircraft, the leader of the long distance flight was R G Kellett - I have not seen a reference that states what this stands for.Nigel Ish (talk) 20:03, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Other sources seem to refer to him (the record breaker) as just R. Kellett.Nigel Ish (talk) 20:10, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
There is a photo of the Long Distance Flight crews in a 1938 issue of Flight here [1] - he's the one holding the dog. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.7.147.13 (talk) 21:36, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
