Thank you to Thomas Gilbert Henry Jones’s grandson, who got in touch with and shared that

“You can see how he went on to have an illustrious career in chemistry, and was eventually awarded a CBE for his services.  Apparently he caught measles on the way to serve, and was put off the ship in Capetown so may have been a late arrival to site.”
