Jack Jones

Sad news about Jack Jones. His life was amazing, really inspiring stuff. It’s funny to think that it could have been your own granddad who did all that stuff. I spoke to him a couple of times over the years (about pensions) and he was always very approachable. Do they make them like that anymore?

A bit of trivia, when my son was born I joked that he was another soldier in the army of labour. This is actually a reference to something I read that Jack Jones said about his involvement in the labour movement. I’ve Googled around but can’t find it – if anyone knows the original let me know.
