For those interested My Mother the Granddaughter of Robert Jones V.C Died on Friday 1st November 2013. She passed away after a painfull medical condition but peacfully. She outlived my father , her husband of 57 years by only 16 weeks .
She managed to see her grandfathers Victoria Cross When It was loaned to the museum in Brecon some years ago by Lord Ashcroft to whom I am grateful. It had always been an ambition of hers .
Thank you for allowing this posting .
Regards
Phil.

My condolences on the loss of your parents. I seem to recall your mother attending the "Supreme Courage" exhibition in Brecon in 2005 - that was quite an exhibition.
