After having been away from home for about fifteen years, and having been through the whole of the recent Boer War, Mr Arthur F. Jones, one of the stalwart sons of Mr and Mrs Jones, School House, St Nicholas, has arrived home, looking like a veritable campaigner. In our next issue will appear some interesting notes on the numerous engagements Mr Jones, as one of the Cape Mounted Rifles, has gone through.
The County Echo, Thursday 8th September 1904
Appointment. - We are pleased to learn that Mr A H Jones, late of the Cape Mounted Rifles, has been appointed by Col Hopkinson, commandant of the Alexandria (Egypt) City Constabulary, as a first-class member of that corps, with a promise of an officer's commission in due course, his South African war experiences having been taken into consideration in granting him this position. We believe Mr Jones intends to take up his Egyptian duties early in January. We are pleased to be able to state that this appointment was due to the influence of Mr W R Williams (Fishguard), of the Egyptian Irrigation Department, who is a friend of Col Hopkinson, and a nephew of Mr W Geo James, J.P., Llysyronen. - We congratulate Mr Jones on his appointment and wish him every success in his new sphere of labour.
