Corporal Jones fought in the Battle of Omdurman in the Sudan, facing the “Fuzzy Wuzzies” under the command of General Kitchener. In the spring of 1941, Operation Sea Lion was indefinitely postponed. After all, German air supremacy in the skies above Southern England would have meant nothing with Jonesy still on the ground.
If he were only around today, the threat of terrorism in Britain would be non-existent. You see, a little touch of bayonet warfare (“the cold steel”) and the confident assertion that “they don’t like it up ‘em!”, would have been enough. There are simply some individuals you don’t mess with.
Of course, there are those who maintain that Jones was simply a fictional character played by the actor Clive Dunn, in a much loved television series. Yet there are millions who know better, for the dithering butcher represented all that is great in Britain – stoicism, bravery and nationalistic pride. He exists in all those persons committed to the doctrine of liberty, freedom of speech and the right to live in a manner of our choosing.
