“News was received this week that Gunner Alfred John Parker, R.G.A., son of the late Mr. John Parker and Mrs. Parker, Pillory-street, Nantwich, has been killed in action. The Major of his battery, in a letter of sympathy to his wife, paid a tribute to her husband’s fine qualities as a soldier. He mentioned that death took place instantaneously. Gunner Parker, who was 33 years of age, enlisted twelve months ago, and was recently wounded, and had only rejoined the artillery three days before his death, which occurred on Thursday last week. Before joining the Army he was an assistant in the provisions department of Messrs. P. H. Chesters, in whose employ he had been for 22 years. He leaves a widow and a daughter.”
