Provenance: Brigadier Morey Quayle Jones CB CMG CBE DL was born in 1855, the son of a vicar.
Quayle Jones was commissioned into the 6th of Foot in 1873, later the Royal Warwickshire Regiment, making Captain ten years later. 1884 saw him serving as a Major with the 4th Pioneer Bechuanaland Field Force and 1898 saw him with the Nile Expedition as part of the Second Sudan War.
On the Nile Expedition of 1898 and still a Major, Quayle Jones temporarily commanded his regiment as a result of an early posting for the outgoing Commanding Officer and late arrival of his successor, just long enough for Quayle Jones to see the 1st Battalion through the battle of Atbara.
He retired in 1909 and became Deputy Lieutenant for Warwickshire. Civilian life was not going to be allowed to keep him when in 1914 the Great War saw him return to the colours commanding first the 104th Infantry Brigade from 1914-1915 and later the 11th Reserve Brigade in 1916.
He was made a CMG in 1917 and a CBE in 1919.
He died in 1946, aged 91.
