September 1918

Pte. Herbert Jackson, 15th Batt. Highland Light Infantry, died in January from wounds received at Paschendale Nov. 1917, and was carefully nursed and cared for in the Hospital in St.Omer.

He came to Dore twenty years ago, and was associated with the Post Office all the time. He married into an old-standing Dore family, and leaves a widow, one son and two daughters. He filled posts of responsibility on various village committees, viz., the Agricultural Society, the Ploughing Society, Dore Parish Council, and Dore Insurance Club, being widely known and respected. He held the office of Postmaster for Dore, was of a cheerful disposition, with an intensely patriotic spirit which made him feel that he was duty bound to offer himself for military service.
