2KEH 'I-K'
JONES Frank (Fred) W. 927. Private 2KEH enlisted  December 1914 and served in Serjeant Cowley's troop. Later became a Private in the Army Service Corps R/39963. The very grainy photograph of Private Frank Jones with Private Charlie Hakewill  appeared in the Market Harborough Advertiser 9 November 1915 taking a break. The article about the photograph explains Charlie was nicknamed “Peter the Painter” and Fred W. Jones was “Jockey” enjoying a “well earned rest,” and we might also add, a well earned refreshment. Both send cheery greetings to their Harborough friends. They are in 2nd King Edward’s Horse, The Canadian Mounted Brigade.
An additional photograph of Private Jones, 2KEH who was a cross country horseman from a village in Market Harborough, UK on horseback is shown in Figure 165b from local sources by W. R. (Bob) H. Hakewill a published local historian in Market Harborough, UK.
