I served with Jack. What a great guy, full of fun! Just a great bloke!

I visit his grave every time I go to Hartlepool. I always think of my mates I have lost, for they will never see what we have seen, or have what we have

RIP Jacko

Although a long time back,I joined Junior Para on the same day as Jack, we both served in the Pegasus Gym Team, and I was with Jack in XMG when he was killed.
A fantastic full of fun guy with such a good sense of humour, great determination.
But also a kind streak.

I joined Junior Para a few months after Jack but joined the Gym Team with him. A solid bloke and everyone called him friend. I have so many memories of touring N.Devon with Jack during the long hot summer of 76.

Remembering today a very special man. Jack was fondly known to me and my family as Jock. He was in Junior Para with my brother Kevin Gilbert. Jock spent a lot of time with us in Bristol and we have some classic memories of Jock. 38 years ago, I had a visit from the local Police informing me we had lost Jock so very cruelly to. I then spent some time chatting, crying and laughing with his Dad miles away in Hartlepool, on the phone. Fondly remembered and often spoken about with my Mum. Never forgotten Jock, rest in peace. xx
