Army Service Corps, attached a Royal Army Medical Corps Field Ambulance.

Awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal in the London Gazette of 3 October 1918.

Jobling was a native of Burnley, Lancashire.

The citation for the D.C.M. published in the London Gazette reads, "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during an enemy attack. For six days he drove his ambulance between the regimental aid posts and advanced dressing stations under heavy shell fire with almost no rest. On one occasion he made fourteen consecutive trips on a road under heavy fire. He undoubtedly saved many lives, and only ceased work when he himself was badly wounded".
