Report in the Chester Chronicle 6th April 1918 regarding the death of John Thomas Jones
"News was received from the War Office on Saturday that Captain John T. Jones had 'died on March 28th, information to follow.' The fact that the deceased officer had only left his home at Whitchurch in the best of health and spirits caused much conjecture, and it was hoped a mistake had occurred. On Tuesday morning his wife and sister received further details, stating he had had violent sickness on the sea journey, and ruptured a blood vessel, being dead when brought into hospital on landing. Universal sympathy is felt with his wife and sister, and much regret at the tragic close of a brilliant career. Only on the previous Saturday Capt. Jones was invested with the Military Cross by H.M. the King."
