This is my first British medal in my collection. Awarded to 2nd Lt. T.R. Jones.

Part of my family are Jones so that's one of the reasons I got it.

Any info on this soldier would be greatly appreciated.

The more I'm researching, it may be next to impossible to determine who they were without the service number.

I will have to take a look at my resources in the morning. Might find something but  with such a common last name on an officer I would assume there will be more than one 2nd Lt with the name “T. R. Jones” who served in WW1.

Is there anything stamped after the name? Typically, these would have a unit marked after the name. Jones is a VERY common name in England and STUPIDLY common among the Welsh. Unless we can narrow this hunt down significantly, the odds of identifying the original owner are miniscule.

There usually isn’t a unit marking behind the name for officers on BWM or Victory medals. As far as I know the only officer campaign medals for WW1 with the unit after the name are the 1914 and 1914-15 stars. Both the BWM and Victory medal to officers will lack the unit unless they were in the RAF or RFC.
