Jack Wilson was born in 1923, the eldest son of mill workers. Money was never plentiful and so as a child he knew poverty, but lived surrounded by the love of his family. It was as a member of the Royal Navy during the Second World War that he travelled the world facing constant danger and wondering whether or not he would ever see his wife and family again. Lurching ships in icy seas with the constant threat of being washed overboard, the hidden dangers of enemy submarines, lucky escapes as well as his brush with the D-Day landings are only the beginning of Jack's story. The end of the war came and Jack began his service as a policeman, working his way through the ranks from Constable to Chief Inspector. No day was ever the same as one minute he dealt with the mundane, but was also faced with kidnappings, murders, and the hunt for missing persons, as well as a frightening siege at the hands of armed I.R.A. gunmen. As a policeman he always wanted the best outcome for the crimes which he became involved with and at the heart of his policing were the principles he had learned in his early life, of respect, truth, honesty and family loyalty. Jack is generous of spirit, proud and caring... and this is his story.
