In 1908 Frederick Septimus Kelly, an Australian, was a music student in Germany. By years end, he was an Olympic gold medallist rowing for Britain. Kelly's diaries, acquired by the National Library in 1972, date from October 1907 to the landing at Gallipoli in 1915. They are an extraordinary record of a career in music, including his friendship with the poet Rupert Brooke, his involvement with the London Classical Concert Society and his role in bringing composer Maurice Ravel to London for an historic first visit. Kelly was killed at Beaucourt-sur-Ancre during the final battle of the Somme late in 1916 and was awarded a DSC for his heroic actions there. He was 35. An expatriate long forgotten in his own country, Race Against Time restores 'Sep' Kelly's name to the national roll of honour.
