This is a picture of Bombardier John Jackson, 1st Regiment Royal Horse Artillery. This handsome dog was later to become my father. As for the date, well you'll see on his chest he has a medal ribbon with a number 8 on. That makes it after the Africa campaign, when he, Spike Milligan and other gunners, were putting a stop to Field Marshall Rommel's trot.

A brilliant picture of my uncle John, i used to go and visit him sometimes when he lived in Abram and looked forward to his chats about his exploits and the family when they were all kids.
