He was a married painter with no previous military experience. On his Attestation (enlistment) papers, he listed his next-of-kin as his wife, Annie Jones of Asquith Post Office.1

     On 13 November 1916 he embarked for France where he served for 23.5 months with the 13th Battalion. He was wounded in the left forearm and received an eye injury (right eye) on June 3, 1917 "in front of Lens" when he was "blown up by high explosive shell" and struck by a bullet or shell fragment. He was later invalided to England. On Sept 1st he was transferred to the 3rd Labour Battalion.1 Pte. Archibald James Jones ended military service as part of general demobilization on 25 March 1919 at Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, as medically unfit due to wounds.

It was considered that he could not return to work as a painter due to these vision problems.
