Very sad news, Edward Price Jones. M.M., perhaps the very last Burma veteran of the 2nd battalion Royal Welch Fusiliers has passed away age 99. I had the pleasure of meeting him several years ago and recorded an interview of his war time reminiscences. Ted, was a modest man and was greatly surprised in later life that people wanted to talk about his time in Burma. For so long no one had been interested in the war but in the last twenty years he became a minor celebrity in the Welshpool area. Whenever the local newspaper wanted a veteran for an Armistice day photograph, or whatever, Ted was the man to go to. Many of us were hoping that he would make his 100 but sadly, it was not to be. God bless you Ted, may you rest in peace. JONES Edward Pryce M.M. "Ted" Passed away peacefully on July 21st 2019. Aged 99 years, formerly of Ty Brith. Beloved Husband of the late Ruth. Much loved Father of John. A dear Brother and Uncle. Funeral Service at Guilsfield Parish Church on Monday August 5th at 1pm followed by committal at Emstrey Crematorium. Standards are welcome, medals to be worn. Enquiries please to R.G Peate Funeral Director Welshpool. Tel: 01938 559256.
