Up to the time of his marriage in 1908, Joseph William Jacklett was probably working as a photographer at his mother's studio at 160 Victoria Road, Aldershot. By 1911, the Jacklett family had moved to Surrey and the studio at 160 Victoria Road, Aldershot was being operated by The London Portrait Company.

 

The Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes (RAOB) is one of the largest fraternal organisations in the United Kingdom. The order started in 1822 and is known as the Buffs to members.

The RAOB organisation aids members, their families, dependents of former members and other charitable organisations.

The Order's motto is "No Man Is At All Times Wise" (Latin: Nemo Mortalium Omnibus Horis Sapit) and it has the maxim of "Justice, Truth and Philanthropy". The Order has a Rule Book, Manual of Instruction and Ceremony Lectures issued and revised by the Grand Lodge of England. The 'lodge' description for branch organisation and headquarters was adopted in imitation of Freemasonry.
