I just added profiles for David Bowie's father and paternal grandparents.  His grandfather was KIA in France, so he's now part of the Great War project and listed on the Wikitree Roll of Honor.

WikiTree profile: Robert Jones

Due to the work of many Wikitree'ers, we have connected this war hero to the family tree in just a few days.  Thanks to Doug Lockwood (who created profiles for many direct ancestors and other family members), Scott Fulkerson (who created many family profiles, including collateral lines), Eric Daly (who provided information about the specific battle where Robert died, and learned of his blood connection), and everyone else who contributed to make this happen!
