He was educated at South African College, Cape Town, 1924-1928, and the University of Cape Town, 1929-1933, where his studies combined chemistry with mechanical engineering. He went on to take a doctorate at Cape Town researching on the refrigerated gas storage of South African fruit (PhD 1937). In 1937 he married Hilda Watney Wilson; they had four children. He returned to England in 1937 and joined the Rolls Royce Aeroengine Division, Derby where he worked on the Merlin, Griffon and Vulture engines. In 1940 he transferred to a new department being set up by S.G. Hooker to develop gas turbines at Derby. Six years later he was appointed assistant to A.A. Griffith and employed on advance performance and research planning for engines. In 1948 he becametechnical adviser to R.N. Dorey on centrifugal engines and wasclosely involved with the Derwent, Nene, Dart and Tay engines. Twoyears later he joined the engine division of the Bristol Aeroplane Company. Shortly after arriving at Bristol he took charge of the department entrusted with the design and development of ramjet engines for the Bristol Bloodhound Guided Missile which saw service with the RAF. Jamison’s work in missile propulsion led to the investigation of engines for supersonicflight. In 1962 he was given the task of setting up a new Advanced Propulsion Research Departmentat Bristol Siddeley Engines Limited. In December 1965 Jamison became Chief Engineer (Research) and in 1971 he was appointed Chief Technical Executive (Research) of Rolls Royce, Bristol Engines Division. He retired in 1975. Jamison wasVisiting Professor at the University of Bath 1969-1973. He was elected FRS 1969 and FEng 1976. He died in 1991. For a fuller account of Jamison’s life and work see the biographical memoir by L. Haworth, M.A. Nedham and G.L. Wilde, Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society 40 (1994), 173-194.

His experienceincluded: a) Cooling development for the Rolls Royce ‘Exe’ 24 cylinder, air-cooled, sleeve valve engine. b) Lubrication development on Vulture, Merlin and Griffon engines. c) In 1940 he transferred to a new department being set up to develop gas turbine aero-engines.Its initial work was on Griffith contraflow turbine with interestlater shifting to Whittle type and straight axial units. During the next ten years in this field his responsibilities covered many aspects of gas turbine research, design and development, including the aerodynamics of blading and ducts, combustion, mechanical development andtesting.
