Jeremiah ‘Jerry’ Alvin Jones died (born in Truro, 1858). A First World War veteran who served with the 106th Battalion (NS Rifles) in the Canadian Expeditionary Forces, he had lied about his age, saying he was thirty-nine, when he was actually fifty-eight. He was later recommended for the Distinguished Conduct Medal at the Battle of Vimy Ridge, but there was no record of his having received it — it was granted posthumously as the Canadian Forces Medallion for Distinguished Service on February 22, 2010. Jerry was the grandfather of well-known social activist Rocky Jones. (Also see Rocky Jones, July 29, 2013.). (Photo: Jeremiah ‘Jerry’ Alvin Jones. Wikipedia Creative Commons.)
