Air Chief Marshal Sir Brendan James Jackson, GCB (23 August 1935 – 19 November 1998) was a Royal Air Force officer who became Deputy Commander of RAF Strike Command.

RAF career

Born on 23 August 1935,[1] Jackson was educated at Chichester High School For Boys and the University of London. He then joined the Royal Air Force on a National Service Commission in 1956.[2] As a junior officer, he successfully ejected from a Victor B2 which became uncontrollable during a night training exercise on 20 March 1963.[2] Jackson also became a qualified interpreter.[2] He was appointed Officer Commanding No. 13 Squadron in 1966 and went on to be Station Commander at RAF Marham in 1977.[2] He was made Director of Air Staff Plans at the Ministry of Defence in 1979 and then Assistant Chief of Staff (Policy) at SHAPE in 1984.[2] He went on to be Chief of Staff and Deputy Commander-in-Chief, Strike Command in 1986 and Air Member for Supply and Organisation in 1988.[2] He wrote a paper entitled "Nuclear Forces – The Ultimate Umbrella" in 1991, in which he wrote that Third World nuclear proliferation was even "more chimerical" than the threat from Russian nuclear weapons.[3] He retired in 1993.[2][4]


In 1959 he married Shirley Norris; they had one son and one daughter.[2]
