  • Notes 



    • Dave is the 3rd son of the late comedian, and Past King Rat, George Jackley, and younger brother of the late Nat Jackley

      He started his career as a member of the Eight Lancashire Lads and has spent most of his working life in the theatre, both performing and on the production side, working for the Bernard Delfont Organisation and Robert Nesbitt during 11 pantomime seasons at the London Palladium in the 50's and 60's. This led to him being involved with many Royal Command Performances.

      Fully experienced in all aspects of theatre life, Dave also starred in a TV series, "The Handy Gang", in 1963 - the same year that his wife Marie was Queen Ratling. Marie and Dave met when in Pantomine together in Birmingham. Marie was a Tiller Girl. After Marie passed away in 1966 Dave married Doris and spent many summer seasons in Blackpool as Company Manager at The Opera House, The Winter Gardens and the North Pier Theatre. He retired at the age of 70 in 1983

      Biographical note provided in December 2000 by his daughter, Josephine.
