Gareth Richard Vaughan Jones

Hero of Ukraine

(1905 -1935)

A Man Who Knew Too Much...

"That part of the world is a cauldron of conflicting intrigue and one or other interests concerned probably knew that Mr Gareth Jones knew too much of what was going on...  He had a passion for finding out what was happening in foreign lands wherever there was trouble, and in pursuit of his investigations he shrank from no risk...  I had always been afraid that he would take one risk too many.  Nothing escaped his observation, and he allowed no obstacle to turn from his course when he thought that there was some fact, which he could obtain.  He had the almost unfailing knack of getting at things that mattered."

  London Evening Standard, quoting former British Prime Minister David Lloyd George, 26th August 1935.
