"Flight Lieutenant Owen Hafen Ellis JONES (122023), R.A.F.V.R., 601 Sqn.

Flight Lieutenant Jones has displayed great skill and courage in air operations.
He has completed very many sorties, including numerous successful attacks against enemy gun positions, tanks and locomotives.
On a number of occasions his aircraft has been hit by anti-aircraft fire but Fligh't Lieutenant Jones has never failed to press home his attack.
Cool, courageous and relentless in action, this officer has set a splendid example.

92 Squadron diary.

Later in the morning Flight Lieutenant O.H. Jones, whom we have neither seen nor heard of for nearly two months since he left us at Fano for a ‘social call’ on the A.O.C. Balkan Air Force, reappeared in a replacement Spit he had flown up from Brindisi. Two months of cooling his heels on the ground we hope for his sake, will cure him of his desire to roll a Spit at fifty feet even though he does it very well. With ‘Jonah’ and ‘Hutch’ back the Mess is beginning to take on its old shape again."
