Lt John Stanley Bluett Hugh-Jones, Rifle Brigade

Difficult to find. No regiment nor age. I think he is the same man as SH Jones who joined same day1920 Aug 6. This SH Jones never joined - resigned but allocated allocated Service no 115. That man is given as Rifle Brigade with no more information. Service no 240 has no Regiment. There is a third source on him, the Leave Book which goes S Hugh-Jones. If it is the same man that the solution is John Stanley Bluett Hugh-Jones, an Officer in the Rifle Brigade, and I feel that this is our man. And S Hugh-Jones born 1893 in Hampshire is in RIC Roll
