The Tragic End 

On the Eve of his Thirtieth Birthday 

 Extract from Evening News, London, Friday, August 16th, 1935. 

Friday 16th August – London Evening Standard (telegram sent to Berlin by Dr Müller): 

Gareth Jones is no more.  His body, pierced by three bullets, is lying in Pao Ch’ang.  Details of his death are so far not obtainable.  One thing is certain, that my dear comrade met death with the same fearlessness with which he stood up to his captors and to threats of death and imprisonment.

The Tragic End.
