    • Thomas Jones was the son of Robert Noble Jones and Martha Thompstone Jones, of 101 Stout St., Gisborne, New Zealand. AWMM
    • 30 Sept 1916 - Word was received to-day that Lance- Corporal T. A. Jones, eldest son of Judge and Mrs R. N. Jones, had been wounded in France on September 17. No details have been given as to the extent of the injuries. Lance-Corporal Jones, who went from Mangapapa school to Nelson College to complete his education, was an officer in the Public Trust Office, Wellington. He volunteered to go with the first reinforcements., but was prevented by illness that necessitated his removal from camp and an operation. As soon as he was again able to pass the medical test he went into camp, and left with the Mounted Rifles, After his arrival in France he had some thrilling experiences, but escaped without any injury that would incapacitate him. His second brother died of wounds received in action in France, and his other brother has completed his period of training, preparatory to receiving orders after being home on final leave Public - Lorraine M - Researcher - 23 September 2015 - Poverty Bay Herald, Volume XLIII, Issue 14111, 30 September 1916, Page 3
