Birth: Nov. 4, 1921
Death: Jul. 10, 1943

Seaman First Class John H. JONES drowned during the amphbious landings on 10 July 1943 at Punta Braccetto in Sicily. He was first buried in a small cemetery behind the landing beaches. Seaman Jones was reburied in the temporary American GELA Cemetery in grave B-21-252. After the war he was reburied in the Poston Cemetery in Rowan County in Kentucky

Over 1,200 men and women were buried in the GELA Cemetery between July 1943 and 1947. I am writing a book about this cemetery and hope to have it finished next year (2013). (bio by: Jan Bos from Nijmegen, Holland)
