He was badly wounded in the right elbow by return fire from a He 111 in November which prevented him from flying for nearly a year. He returned to flying as a Flight Commander with 601 Squadron, later becoming the Squadron Commander. From February 1942 until February 1944 Jones commanded 79 Squadron in India and Burma. During this time he shot down two Mitsubishi bombers. He was awarded the DFC in 1944 having completed three tours of operations.
