Charles Hilton Jones was born and educated in Liverpool. He was a 1st MB student on entering university in 1942, having studied arts subjects in the sixth form, a route which, no doubt facilitated his editing of both the university newspaper and the medical school magazine. As it was war time he was required to serve for six hours weekly in the Medical (M) Company of the Liverpool University Senior Training Corps (colloquially known as the LUST Corps), and was automatically enrolled into the Home Guard. Charles also volunteered for fire watching duties. After the Normandy invasion M Company was detailed to meet military ambulance trains from the south coast at Broadgreen station and carry the wounded by stretcher to waiting ambulances.
