Re(4): James Jones
IP: 142.167.85.66


Gentlemen. Thank you for your responses. I will follow up on your suggestions.I have no evidence Jim Jones was a Lancashire Fusilier. He was born in Lancaster, his parents owned a pub
there. Jim, my sister/ his wife and their son emigrated to Canada in 1954, a year after my Mom and Dad and several younger children of whom I was one. Jim Jones was as tight as it comes about his was service but I have reason to believe it was impressive.My sister told me he was offered a field commission but turned it down. He was a territorial before the was and I believe was sent to France very early on and was later evacuated from Dunkirk. I remember seeing a photo of him taken in Durban.SA He was in some kind of rickshaw pulled by a man in Zulu garb. he suffered injuries to his face in Burma. Throughout his life he was still pulling bits of metal from his face. I have written to the RTR Adjutant but they were unable to help except to say that 2 RTR was in Burma. This is all so long aago for me now. I am 78 long retired and save for my nephew would not take it on. So I Thank you again and will plug on. Kind reards. Owen Davey
