Peter Kelly, former IWA trustee and IWA West Country Branch member died on 8th February 2022, aged 83.
Peter John Louis Kelly was born in Portsmouth on 24th March 1938. He attended Colchester Royal Grammar School but decided that the academic world was not for him.
At the remarkably young age of 15, Peter joined the Royal Navy as a Boy Seaman Grade II. Here his hidden talents flourished and he made his way steadily through the ranks.
