    Operation Bags Away for scary Sir Mike

    By Nathan Yates

    IT was the kind of craggy look that seemed to suit a military man.

    The bags under the eyes were an essential ingredient - and helped earn General Sir Mike Jackson the nickname "Prince of Darkness" who meant business

    Now Sir Mike, 58, has gone all clean-cut and Civil Service-ish after surgery in which the distinctive pouches under his eyes and on his eyelids have been removed.

    Sir Mike - the army's most senior officer as Chief of the General Staff - drew curious glances at a social function in London, where dark shadows under his eyes indicated recent surgery, and his well-worn look has gone

    Yesterday the MoD confirmed he had had an operation on his eyes, "for medical reasons, including the removal of a cataract".

    Friends say Sir Mike was finding it difficult to read.

    It is understood that he also took the opportunity to have further surgery on the eyeball and eyelids.

    Cheroot-smoking Sir Mike, who rallied troops before the war in Iraq, is now on leave...with his eyes right again, but not half as scary."
