I am looking for any Jackson from Oxford who survived WW1 or died in service.

Reggie Report 2 Mar 2013 13:05

If they died in service, you will find the records on the following FREE site

And, please take a moment to read your post...............would you be able to help if you were one of us?

Ok...I have a photo from Oxford paper in 1915 of 6 sons of Mrs Sarah Jackson all serving in war.

James RMLI 1895
William 2/4 OBLI 1889
Herbert Leonard 8th OBLI 1893
Arthur H... RFC 1887
Charles D ..Army Ordnance Corps 1879

There are two GR members with Horace in their trees.

That should always be the first place you look in searches such as this

Reggie I am sorry about this. The family gave us to understand that these men were casualties of war and none of the family knew of their wherabouts so I searched the casualties lists. I still think Charles Dennis Jackson may have not returned. He was quite old for service wasnt he? sonya

Reggie

Reggie Report 2 Mar 2013 22:40

Well, the evidence disproves the 'stories'

Don't take anything at face value........check it out.

If Charles Den(n)is isn't on the CWGC site, he wasn't a casualty of the War......

And have you done anything yet about contacting the other GR members?

Sonya

Sonya Report 3 Mar 2013 13:26

Thank You. I have looked on the CWGC site and there are many Charles Jackson entries. I do not know his reg. number all I have is a reference under the newspaper cutting giving AOC which I presume to be Army Ordnance Corps. I could not find his signing up form either (I found this for some of the others) This is handy as it gives the RegNumber. There is one C Jackson Gunner 695554 killed in action 1917. How can I check this ? sonya

Reggie

Reggie Report 3 Mar 2013 21:58

The rank of Gunner is accorded to a soldier serving with the Royal Artillery....not a member of the Ordnance Corps
