This might not be much use but Comet Peltier-Kellaway was discovered in December 1943.

There is a Kellaway Building Supplies which might have a family connection so might be worth contacting them,

The local paper the Yeovil Express has changed hands since 1943 but they would have archives, my thoughts are they would have run a story about the discovery of the comet on 19th December 1943, might be worth enquiring with them to see what they have on record.

I guess the comet was discovered with his 7.5 inch Cooke which he mounted a camera with a Zeiss lens, perhaps the antique telescope society might have further details
