CAPTAIN JOHN TREASURE JONES ARCHIVE - BORN AND RAISED ON A SMALL FARM IN PEMBROKESHIRE, WALES, JOHN TREASURE JONES WENT TO SEA WHEN HE WAS FIFTEEN. FOR THE FIRST FOUR YEARS HE WAS INDENTURED AS AN APPRENTICE, SURVIVING THE OCEANS IN A SMALL TRAMP STEAMER. SLOWLY, HE WORKED HIS WAY UP TO BECOME CAPTAIN OF THE MOST FAMOUS OCEAN LINER AFLOAT AT THE TIME, CUNARD'S R.M.S. QUEEN MARY.
DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR, AS A COMMANDER IN THE ROYAL NAVY RESERVE, HE WAS TORPEDOED IN THE ATLANTIC AND MENTIONED TWICE IN DESPATCHES. IN THE POST-WAR YEARS, HE MIXED WITH FILM STARS AND ROYALTY, COMMANDING SEVERAL OF THE FAMOUS CUNARD LINERS, SUCH AS THE SAXONIA, MAURETANIA AND QUEEN ELIZABETH.
IN 1967, HE TOOK HIS FINAL COMMAND, QUEEN MARY, ON HER LAST VOYAGE, FROM SOUTHAMPTON TO HER RETIREMENT HOME IN LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA.
CAPTAIN TREASURE JONES DIED IN 1993. HIS HIGHLY ACCLAIMED AUTOBIOGRAPHY "TRAMP TO QUEEN" WAS PUBLISHED IN 2008. HIS PERSONAL COLLECTION IS BEING SOLD VIA DIRECT DESCENT AND WAS OBTAINED DURING A MOMENTOUS CAREER AT SEA.

CAPT JOHN TREASURE JONES BLUE ENSIGN THAT FLEW ON MAURETANIA AND QUEEN MARY: The Blue Ensign originally denoted the rear admiral's squadron when the Royal Navy was divided into three squadrons from 1617. This system using the familiar red, white and blue ensigns to denote each one, was abolished in 1864. The Royal Navy retained the White, and the Red Ensign was given to the merchant navy. Since 1861, however, Royal Naval Reserve captains are entitled to fly the Blue Ensign when in command of their merchant ships. There was also the stipulation that at least seven other officers and men on the crew were also Royal Naval Reservists.

The first captains of both the Queen Mary and the Mauretania II were RNR and the various paintings by Charles Pears, Stephen Card & Harley Crossley of these liners at the time of their maiden voyages correctly show them flying the Blue Ensign.
Captain John Treasure Jones was the last master of each these two great liners. After having had the command of the Mauretania II for several years, he took her for her final voyage to the scrapyard at Inverkeithing, Scotland in November 1965. He then took command of the Queen Mary for her final two years at sea, which ended when she arrived in Long Beach in December 1967.

As distinct from the Red Ensign, the Blue tended to be the personal property of the Captain. John kept his in a particular attaché case. The story is told that when coming aboard he would call for the Yeoman of Signals and give him the express command that when the ensign was not flying it was to be returned each time to its special case.

Capt. John Treasure Jones's first command of a Cunard passenger ship was the Media.
In the painting by Stephen Card, illustrated in "Liners in Art"by Kenneth Vard, he has specifically painted her flying the Blue Ensign to commemorate a particular voyage undertaken by the author at this time. His ensign also flew from the stern of the liners Sylvania, Saxonia, Carinthia, and Queen Elizabeth.
Captain Treasure Jones finally hauled down his Blue Ensign on 9th December 1967, when he retired from the sea duty, together with his last command, the Queen Mary.

For the funeral of John Treasure Jones it was decided by the family that the coffin should be draped in the Blue Ensign and bear his medals, service cap and dress sword. A fitting tribute to a highly respected and consummate seaman.
Initial contact with the RNR based in Southampton and Portsmouth failed to find an ensign of the suitable size. The Royal Navy at Portsmouth were also unable to assist. Finally, at the very last moment, an ensign arrived by personal courier from the RNR in Liverpool. 18 feet x 8½ feet.

CAPTAIN JOHN TREASURE JONES ARCHIVE: Superb Wilkinson Sword gilt RNR dress sword with shagreen handle and leather and gilt scabbard. Acid etched blade ER, J. Treasure Jones and maker's details with carrying case, simply superb. 37ins. with letter from Harry Beckham, Chairman of Wilkinson Sword.
Apart from being a senior manager of Wilkinson Sword, Harry Beckham Randolph was an engineer and inventor. In 1929, he was granted patent GB321115 for the Wilkinson Empire Safety Razor. By the end of WWII, he was Chairman of Wilkinson Sword.
In the early 1960s, they launched a new and revolutionary Wilkinson Sword razor blade which was soon being sold in more than 50 countries. With this growth into international markets, Harry Randolph became a regular passenger on the North Atlantic and befriended John Treasure Jones.

In the Merchant Marine only the officers of the Pacific & Orient (P&O) Shipping Company were permitted to wear swords. However, John Treasure Jones was a Captain RNR and therefore entitled to wear a sword on appropriate occasions of ceremony.

Lot 87
CAPTAIN JOHN TREASURE JONES ARCHIVE - MAURETANIA'S DOCKING BRIDGE BELL:
The original bronze bell from the docking bridge onboard R.M.S. Mauretania II. The main bridge, located at the forward end of the boat deck was the 'navigating bridge' and was referred to as the 'fore bridge'. The other bridge on the ship was the 'docking bridge' on the Poop Deck and often referred to as the 'after bridge'.
This was a raised platform extending across the breadth of the ship and extending beyond it for several feet on either side. It was equipped with an auxiliary helm (steering wheel) and the ship could be steered from here if the telemotor system on the navigating bridge failed. The docking bridge had two telegraphs similar to those on the navigating bridge. One could transmit engine orders forward; the other could transmit helm (steering) orders aft. When docking the ship, this telegraph was especially necessary as the location of the docking bridge, together with its extension just beyond the ship's sides on either end, permitted an Officer to view the area around the stern of the ship which could not be seen from the navigating bridge. This was also useful when tugs were in attendance to assist the ship in moving in or out of her berth.

On R.M.S. Mauretania there was a second, unmarked, bell on the docking bridge. This was struck as safety signals when the ship was at anchor, or operating closely together with others, in fog. When Mauretania went to be scrapped by Thomas Ward at Inverkkeithing in 1965, this bell was given to Captain Treasure Jones; a rare piece of Cunard history. 17ins. Plus, a typed history of the Mauretania chronicling her history. Captain Treasure Jones obtained the bell when Mauretania was scrapped and it was mounted in his home.

HMT Lancastria was sunk on the 14th June 1940 while taking part in Operation Ariel, the evacuation of British troops and Nationals two weeks after the Dunkirk evacuation. The true number of those lost is unknown with estimates ranging from 3000-6000 people making it the largest single ship-board loss of life in British maritime history. The sinking claimed more lives than the combined losses of the Titanic and Lusitania. The loss of life was so great that the British Government suppressed news of the disaster fearing the devastating effect it would have on morale. 36ins. x 41ins. x 23ins.
