H. L. Jones appears to have received a commission in the Royal Flying Corps in November 1917, his service record noting he held a Board of Trade certificate for navigation and seamanship. Appointed a Lieutenant for services in Kite Balloons in April 1918, he served in France as a Superintendent of Airships at 12 Balloon Base from October 1918. His
subsequent entitlement to the Atlantic Star would suggest he returned to sea in the Marchant Navy after the Great War.
