Jones was born in Runcorn, Cheshire and was a Private in the 1st Battalion, The Cheshire Regiment during WW1. He was affectionately known locally as “Todger” Jones. On 25 September 1916, during the Battle of Morval, Jones performed an act of bravery for which he was awarded the Victoria Cross. He was with his Company covering the advance in front of a village, when he noticed an enemy sniper 200 yards away. He left his trench on his own and crossed no-man’s land without covering fire. Near the enemy trench he saw two more Germans firing on him while simultaneously displaying a white flag. Jones shot them both. Upon reaching the enemy trench he found several occupied dug-outs and single-handedly disarmed 102 Germans. Three or four were officers and the entire trench was taken by Jones and his comrades. Jones is buried in Runcorn Cemetery and his Victoria Cross is displayed at the Cheshire Military Museum in Chester. Only two Victoria Crosses have been won by the Cheshire Regiment: Private Jones on 25 September 1916 and 2nd Lieutenant Hugh Colvin on 20 September 1917.

I wish to place on record my record of appreciation of Gallantry and Devotion to duty??? The operations on the night 8th/9th August. You were one of a party of four who attacked a machinegun post, the approach of which was full of uncut wire. You got through the wire and without waiting for the remainder, rushed the post from which the enemy fled leaving the gun in your possession.

About 30 prisoners and a number of valuable documents captured, mostly by C Coy.
