    [Julius from Wendy Jack August 2005.FTW]

    An obituary appeared in "The Times" newspaper:
    Lieutenant T. R. E. Jackson, Coldstream Guards, recently re ported
    killed in action, was the elder and only surviving son of
    Brigadier-General Sir Thomas Jackson, Bt., and Lady Jackson , of
    Herringfleet Hall, near Lowestoft. Tom Jackson was so read y for any
    adventure and, once embarked upon it, so completely forgetf ul of self
    that his courage and daring were sure to lead him into plac es of the
    greatest danger. After taking an active part in the Tunisia n campaign,
    during which he was wounded, he was killed last month whil e leading a
    completely successful counter-attack. His commanding office r writes:
    "He was beloved by officers and men alike, and in additio n was an
    extremely competent soldier and fighting man." His compan y officer
    says: "It is given to few to inspire such confidence as h e did." From
    a very early age Tom showed a sturdy independence of charac ter,
    combined with a fine physique and outstanding good looks o f which he
    was completely unconcious. Utterly fearless all through hi s boyhood
    days, he never scorned others more timid than himself, ye t to be a
    friend of Tom's one had to be prepared to take part in nume rous
    undertakings most of which were far beyond one's own powers . Sailing
    and shooting were what he loved doing best, and at both h e was first
    class; he was also a great lover of nature, and took the tr ouble to
    study the habitats of all wild creatures. In his home lif e he was
    ideally happy, and when he reached manhood never forgot al l that he
    owed to this source. His loyalty and straight-forwardnes s of outlook
    are an inspiration and example for those of us who remain , while his
    wonderful thoughtfulness for others was the characteristi c for which
    many will have cause to remember Tom with gratitude.
