REMEMBRANCE DISPATCH NO. 34 COMMEMORATES LIEUTENANT HENRY ST JOHN SAUNDERS JONES (DAY BOY 1906-1901) WHO WAS KILLED IN ACTION ON 3RD AUGUST 1917.
Henry St John Saunders Jones, the son of Reverend Saunders Jones, the Vicar of St David’s, Brecon and later Vicar of Cantref, joined Christ College as a Day Boy in September 1906. Though he enjoyed cricket and rugby football, and gained prizes in the Athletic Sports of 1909 and 1910, his career at school was said to be undistinguished. He left at the age of 15 to train as a motor car engineer.
Lieutenant Henry St John Saunders Jones, seen “fighting to the last with his revolver”, is buried at Dar Es Salaam War Cemetery and is remembered on the Christ College War Memorial.
