Major Stanley Livingston Jones, B.A.  (1878 –1916)

Major Stanley Livingstone Jones was born in Wolfville, Nova Scotia on June 16, 1978.  He served as a private with the Royal Canadians in the South African War from 1899 – 1901 and was presented with a medal and four clasps.  He came to Alberta in 1901 and practised as a member of the law firm of Lent and Jones Co. in Calgary.  In 1904 he married Alice B. Todd Walkerton.  He was President of the Canadian South African Veterans Association, Calgary; Secretary of the Alberta Provincial Liberal Association; a member of the Canadian Club and I.O.O. F. His recreations were rifle shooting and mountain climbing.

Major Stanley Jones was one of the first to volunteer in arms for Canada and the British Empire in the First World War.  The story of what he did at the Front was a household tale.  Wounded again and again, he nevertheless returned as often to his post of duty.  As an officer of the immortal Princess Patricia Light Infantry (P.P.C.L.I.) battalion, the history of that splendid regiment and Major Stanley Jones are one and the same.

Many eulogistic remarks were passed by downcast legal profession members and court officials who happened to be at the Court House when informed that Stanley L. Jones, Major in the P.P.C.L.I. had died as a result of wounds received on the field of battle.

Brave, public-spirited, noble-hearted, generous Stanley Jones. No more Gallant Canadian ever left our shore to die for his country.
