At Darwin, East Falkland, Falkland Islands, the battalion commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Jones, was held up in its attack by very well prepared enemy positions. Colonel Jones and his reconnaissance party managed to gain the top of a recently secured re-entrant, but the enemy continued to pour fire on the battalion advance which was in danger of faltering. Colonel Jones, now at the very front of his men, charged the nearest enemy position. He fell, picked himself up and charged again, but was hit and fell dying only a few feet from the enemy. A company of the battalion then attacked and the enemy quickly surrendered - devastated by Colonel Jones' courage.
