gun had been causing much annoyance to the garrison.

out cf this, the Boers who had crept up bare footed, had
succeeded in driving them. Our men led by Lieut.
Jones, however, retook the position almost immediately.
One report states that he shot three Boers, clubbed a
fourth and kept them at bay till help arrived. Later on
a determined attack was again made by the Boers, when
Lieut. Jones shot Commandant Von Wyk, second in com-
mand to De Villiers, but was himself killed immediately
afterwards. Sir A. Conan Doyle thus mentions this
incident, differing slightly from the above: " In a gun em-
placement a strange encounter took place at point blank
range between a group of Boers and Britons. De Villiers
of the Free State shot Miller- Walnut dead, Ian Hamilton
fired at De Villiers with his revolver but missed him.
Young Albrecht of the Light Horse shot De Villiers. A
Boer named De Jaeger shot Albrecht. Digby Jones of
the Sappers shot De Jaeger. Only a few minutes later
the gallant lad, who had already won fame enough for a
veteran, was himself mortally wounded, and Dennis his
comrade in arms and in glory fell by his side." Another
report states that by his splendid example Lieut. Jones
saved Ladysmith. In most books on the war this officer's
bravery and intrepid conduct is referred to. He was
twice mentioned in despatches, L.G., Feb. 8th, 1901, and
again April 19th, 1901, where it is stated by Lieut.-Gen.
Sir G. White that he would have recommended Lieut.
Jones for the V.C. had he survived, and mentions with
regret that he was killed. It was, however, announced
in the L.G., August 8th, 1902, that His Majesty The King
was pleased to approve of this decoration being sent to
the representatives of Lieut. Jones, for his conspicuous
bravery " in leading the force which re-occupied the top of
the hill at a critical moment, just as the three foremost
attacking Boers reached it, the leader being shot by Lieut.
Jones." At the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, in the
