Citation from Air Ministry Bulletin 12905.

During all his operational flying, this officer has shown himself to be keen and tenacious in his duties as bomb aimer. On six occasions his aircraft has been subjected to fighter attacks and damaged by anti-aircraft fire. At all times, however, Pilot Officer Jones has continued to bomb his target with great accuracy.

His high standard of efficiency and devotion to duty have been admirable.
