1921 Feb 11. 2 tenders with men from J Coy were stopped by a destroyed bridge at Clondrohid . A civilian was shot. Jackson gave evidence at the inquiry

1921 Feb 26 Twohig "Green Tears for Hecuba" says that an Auxiliary called Jackson from Belfast fired his revolver through the ceiling , narrowly missing the acting CO in the room above. He was drummed out the next day. J Coy was at Macroom, but this man was certainly not drummed out of ADRIC, serving till Jan 1922. On the face of it this seems to be the only Jackson stationed at Macroom. He is not from Belfast either.
