    Pte George Jones 2nd Btn

    Hi everyone
    A few years ago I bought a 15 star to a S/6711 Pte George Jones 2nd Btn Black Watch, on further research I found he was killed in the battle of Shaikh Sa'ad on the 07/01/1916 and is buried at Amara cemetery. He originally enlisted in 1898 and was severely wounded at Magersfontein 11/12/1899 service number 6917.
    I was lucky enough to find a newspaper photo of him so decided to frame it all up I hope you like it.
    He was only five foot 3 inches tall but what a brave terrier of a man he must have been,i feel honoured to be a custodian of this mans medal and if anyone finds his other medals I would love to reunite them
    regards
    david
