This roll of honour was originally in Haslingden, East Lancashire, where the 2nd Volunteer Battalion was based, but is now at the Rossendale Museum, Rawtenstall. Very difficult to photograph as it's in a glass cabinet, with another glass cabinet facing it, so I had to photograph it from different angles to try to avoid my reflection being in the shot.

Also from Haslingden, but in the 1st Battalion, was Captain Parker.

THE LATE CAPTAIN PARKER.

1ST EAST LANCASHIRE REGIMENT.



Captain Parker, who died at Heilbron on Saturday, as recorded in our issue on Tuesday, was a son of Mr. Thomas Parker, cotton manufacturer, Haslingden.

Thanks Berenice, a very nice memorial. Never easy to photograph through glass, or shiny memorials, but you've managed admirably.
