History

Jack Jackson was a Royal Marine Commando who was aboard a British ship sunk by the Japanese in 1943. Jack, rescued by the U.S. Marines, was the sole survivor. He ended up serving with the unit who fished him out of the ocean for the duration of World War II after, due to a misunderstanding, he accidentally signed enlistment papers and became a U.S. Marine himself! In theory, Jack was simply waiting for Washington to realize their error and discharge him, but that didn't stop him seeing a considerable amount of action and, along with his Irish-American sidekick O'Bannion, frequently saving his scornful gum-chewing comrades from the consequences of their own arrogance with his trusty Lee Enfield rifle (a Marine never loses his rifle)!

Notes

Jackson was nicknamed 'Union Jack' after his comrades noticed that whenever he was supposed to be saluting the stars and stripes on parade, he was in fact surreptitiously saluting a miniature Union Jack on a piece of card concealed in his palm. Curiously, they allowed him to get away with this.

Trivia

Union Jack Jackson began life as a text story in Hotspur in 1957 before becoming a comic strip in 1962. Jackson resurfaced in Warlord in 1974 and remained in that title's pages until its cancellation in 1986.
