Clifford Jones was the son of Joseph and Matilda Jones and lived with his wife, Matilda, at 11 Whitehall Road, Halesowen. He attended Halesowen C of E School and volunteered for the Worcesters in 1914. H went to the 9th (Service) Battalion and after training for nearly a year they were sent out to Gallipoli to break the stalemate on the peninsula. They landed successfully on the 6th August and attempted to seize the crest of the ridge of Sari Bair. They were close by the 10th but were driven off by the defenders. It is probable that Private Clifford Jones was seriously wounded after the landing, because he returned to England where he died on the 2nd September. He was 18 years of age and is buried in Halesowen churchyard and commemorated on the Halesowen and Halesowen C of E School Memorials.
