Harry was the son of Thomas Jackson and Fanny Jackson (nee Stubbs), 25 Dale Street South, Edgeley, Stockport. Harry worked for the Chestergate Hat Manufacturing Company until he enlisted into the Army. His service number suggests that he was either a pre-war member of the Territorial Battalion, mobilised when war was declared, or joined up days later.

After the war, Thomas and Fanny had moved and, in the early 1920s, were living at 92 Duncan Road, Longsight, Manchester.
