[BIOGRAPHY]
Noble William Jackson was born in 1895 in Northern Ireland. He enlisted in January 1915 and landed in France with his brother Thomas Henry Jackson on 4th October 1915. Noble was Wounded in Action on 1st July 1916. He was transferred to the Z reserve on 23rd March 1919

A GREATLY DESIRABLE "ROYAL IRISH FUS" BROTHERS, 1st DAY of THE SOMME, 1914-15 "BLACKER A GREATLY DESIRABLE "ROYAL IRISH FUS" BROTHERS, 1st DAY of THE SOMME, 1914-15 "BLACKER Brand New to the Market, this is a VERY desirable Northern Irish "Armagh" medal grouping to two loyal and patriotic brother members of the famous 36th Ulster Division who both arrived in France on the same day, 4th October 1915.

This famous Ulster force was also known as "BLACKER's BOYS"

It's a shame about the missing war medal to the second brother 16113 Pte N.W. Jackson and they also incorrectly called him D.W. on his star, but his service number 16113 is correct on both the star and the victory.

The lead 1st July "First Day" casualty group to elder brother 17932 Pte T.H.Jackson is totally complete and totally correct.

One Hundred & Two Years onward from that catastrophic day, one cannot imagine the scene during those final few minutes within the Royal Irish Trench positions just prior to 07:30am on the morning of Saturday 1st July 1916. I think it's inconceivable that these two brothers weren't standing side by side in their trench during those final moments, or that they didn't go bravely into action together at the sound of their officer's whistle. I'm sure that Noble Jackson, the surviving brother, ran those last few precious moments with his brother through his mind for the rest of his life.

LEST WE FORGET

These two loyal Ulster lads were the sons of William & Essie Jackson of TANDERAGEEBANE, Co, MONAGHAN, Northern Ireland.

The body of Thomas Henry Jackson was lost without trace and having no known grave he is remembered with eternal honour on the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of the Somme. Pier / Face 15a.
