Died after hitting a landmine during a patrol

His brother Michael:

We were close all through our lives because he was just a year and two days older than me. When we were younger we used to fight – I think all brothers do – but once we had left school we were best friends. We both worked for my Dad, then I decided to join the Army and shortly afterwards Jonathan joined up. Part of the reason would have been for the challenge; it was a massive achievement just to actually get into the Marines. He always felt he got one up on me because I was in the Army and he was in the Marines – he used to give me a bit of stick about it. The Marines call the Army lads ‘pongos’ because they say they don’t wash, so that’s what he used to call me.
