Michael Jackson (Q 52-56) died after a long illness on November 3rd, 2021 in Auckland, New Zealand where he had lived since 1967. He left a wife, three sons and a daughter.

At the Nautical College Mike, who came from Essex, was in Macquarie division, the MN Form and for three years the Boxing team. His wife Annette writes:

“Mike enjoyed his time at Pangbourne and the school prepared him well for his career.

He went into the Merchant Navy, obtained his Masters Certificate, sailed with Blue Star and then with The New Zealand Shipping Company.

In 1967 he left the sea after a final voyage in the Rangitoto. That year we married and came to live in Auckland. Here he worked at the Waterfront Training School, teaching port workers to drive heavy machinery. Later he got a job in the Ports of Auckland where he became a Ship Planner. He stayed there until retirement.”
