;with CTE(Cust_No, Tkt_Dat, Tkt_No, RowNum)
as
(
  select c.cust_no, t.tkt_dat, t.tkt_no, row_number() over (order by t.tkt_Dat partition by c.cust_no) as RowNum
  from customer c join ticket_history t on
    c.cust_no = t.cust_no
)
select Cust_No, Tkt_Dat, Tkt_No
from CTE

select cust_no, tkt_dat, tkt_no
from
(
select rn=row_number() over (partition by c.cust_no order by t.tkt_dat desc)
,C.CUST_NO      ,T.TKT_DAT        ,T.TKT_NO
from CUSTOMER C
left join TICKET_HISTORY T on C.cust_no=t.cust_no
) sq
where rn <= 3
order by CUST_NO

You can change left join to inner join depending on whether you want to see  customers without tickets.

If you want the dates ordered backwards like you show in sample

select cust_no, tkt_dat, tkt_no
from
(
select rn=row_number() over (partition by c.cust_no order by t.tkt_dat desc)
,C.CUST_NO      ,T.TKT_DAT        ,T.TKT_NO
from CUSTOMER C
left join TICKET_HISTORY T on C.cust_no=t.cust_no
) sq
where rn <= 3
order by CUST_NO, tkt_dat desc
