Regimental Number: 6283

Name: Joseph Parker
Campaigne or Service: South Africa - Second Boer War
Regiment or Unit: 84th Battery Royal Field Artillery

Had a look this morning but couldn't come up with anything. I see you've cast your net very far and wide in your search. For the 2nd Battalion, The Queens West Surrey man, perhaps contact the museum of the Queen's Royal Surrey Regiment and ask if they have anything on Joseph Parker:

Best of luck.

Cheers,
