2783699 Gregory Robert (Greg/Jacko) Jackson – RAA

John Wells has advised of the death on 27 December 2021 of 2783699 Gregory Robert (Greg/Jacko) Jackson.

Greg was a Nasho who served with 108 Field Battery in SVN from Jun 1967 until February 1968.

John Wells tells us that: “(Greg) was a fundamental part of the spirit of 108 with an unfailing sense of humour and at the time, always able to point out where the Army could do things better.

He was a bloke who more or less singlehandedly put together the (108 Bty) Woolgoolga reunion and that was a ripper in every way. He was also one behind the first “Huey on a Stick” in Australia, the UH1D in the Woolgoolga RSL car park.”

Greg’s funeral was held on 31 December at Coffs Harbour and a wake was held for him at the Woolgoolga RSL. Greg was 76.

RIP Gregory Robert Jackson
