    Alain,

    Jones's story has been published by his great nephew Stephen Harris under the title of 'Under a Bomber's Moon'. It can be read online here at:

    http://books.google.co.nz/books?id=soaeD5nhPkUC&pg=PA207&lpg=PA207&dq=Frank+ Colwyn+JONES&source=bl&ots=8uLBYoHrgd&sig=gZYL66uX orMtpWIGOLPU6sccjPg&hl=en&sa=X&ei=M2CpUIikIqShigen 5YCQDA&sqi=2&ved=0CD0Q6AEwBg#v=onepage&q=Frank%20C olwyn%20JONES&f=false

    If the link does not work just type 'underabombersmoon' into google's search engine.
