When a medical student, Peter Terence Jackson was called up to the Royal Artillery, achieving the rank of major and serving in Africa, India, and Burma. An unassuming man, he was awarded the Burma Star but never claimed it, saying he did not feel he deserved it. A devout Catholic, he lived his faith in a spirit of service and generosity to others. Parkinson’s disease gradually deprived him of any ability to move or communicate, but he gave a shining example in his uncomplaining, complete acceptance of his illness. He leaves a wife, Pat; two children; and two grandchildren.
