I am researching this gentleman, who was my son's maternal great grandfather, and who is the holder of the Distinguished Conduct Medal. (My reasons for research are explained in my 'Introduction of new members' thread.) Marine Jones, who was a member of MNBDO 1, was the holder of the DCM, 1939-45 Star, Africa Star and 1939-45 War Medal. I have his citation for the DCM and it was awarded following his actions on 21 May 1941, south west of Canea, during which he received 4 bullet wounds. There is also a photograph, date taken unknown, which appears to show him wearing Royal Artillery insignia. I am not ex-military and am confused by a Marine possibly wearing this uniform. Regarding his unit, I have 23Rd Light A.A. Bty., Royal Marines and also 23 Light Anti-Aircraft Battery, Royal Marines 2 Royal Marines Anti-Aircraft Regiment. (I'm assuming this is 2 ways of saying the same thing). Service Record is being applied for by my son and I know this will take some time. I would particularly appreciate any help regarding the 'journey' he may have taken to end up "south west of Canea" and what happened during that part of the conflict. Hopefully, my uploading of photograph and citation will be successful (once it's converted to a jpeg). Thank you for any help or information.
