"David Jones (38) who served through the Kaffir and Zulu wars, died suddenly at Scotland street, Llanrwst, under painful circumstances. He was a plasterer, and had been out all day on Friday working, and returning home in the evening, he remarked to his wife just before going to bed that he would never have anything more to do with drink.
Not long after he had retired he complained to his wife of the room being close, and asked her to open the window, which she did instantly, and in answer to his further requests opened all the doors and sought medical aid. In tbe meantime he became worse, and finding himself suffocating rushed downstairs, and sat before the open door, where he expired soon after the arrival of the doctor, who stated that he had died of apoplexy. "

Hi All,
David Jones, must have been a boy soldier if aged 38 when he died, would have been born 1851/52, served 12 years, discharged 1879/80 would give an enlistment about 1868 so he would have been 16 or younger. On the 1881 census he is at his father's, Narrow Street, Llanwrst.
I tried his service papers, but David Jones went straight to Evan Jones. Not the same man.

Can this be narrowed down?

Other than the two VC Jones, and Evan Jones ( Cosgrove) there were two other Rorke's Drift defenders who are both listed as John. 25B/1179 and 25B/970, both of B Company.
Is there any indication on any records that either of these two defenders went by the name of David, middle name, alias??
