Private Frank Ernest Jackson

“FRANK JACKSON was one Ascott man who endured some of these conditions until he died in action on 10th September 1917. Frank Ernest Jackson was the son ofThomas and Mary Ann and they lived in Church View in the seventh cottage up the row of eight. Serving in the same Regiment as Lieutenant Tiddy, Frank’s battalion had moved up from reserve camp at Ypres on the 7th September and reached the frontline at St. Julien on the 9th. On the 10th they assembled at dawn in shell holes about 400 yards forward of the front line and remained there until zero hour – 4 p.m. Advancing under artillery barrage, they were within 30 yards of their objective when held up by machine gun fire from both sides. Despite reinforcements there was no chance of further advance and the survivors remained in position until it was possible to withdraw under cover of darkness. Sixteen men were killed, one of whom was
Frank. Unfortunately Frank’s body was never recovered but his name is engraved on the Tyne Cot Memorial which stands amongst the greatest number of graves in anyCommonwealth War Cemetery. At the end of the War, 11,500 dead were brought to Tyne Cot from the surrounding battlefield. Many of the 34,888 missing listed on the
memorial panels will be amongst them, their remains like Frank’s, unidentified.PRIVATE FRANK ERNEST JACKSON 2nd/4th BATTALION OXFORDSHIRE BUCKINGHAMSHIRE LIGHT INFANTRY 201983.
