Sergeant Charles Parker

' Q '  Battery Royal Horse Artillery

31st March 1900
Sergeant Charles Parker VC

    The heroic act in which Sergeant Parker took part will be found described in detail in the record of Major Phipps-Hornby. The bravery exhibited by ail concerned in the affair at Korn Spruit on March 31, 1900, was so marked as to render it impossible to single out any individual for special merit. Therefore the Commander-inChief decided to treat the case as coming under Rule 13 of the Victoria Cross Warrant, and Sergeant Parker was elected by the non-commissioned officers of the Battery as the representative they considered most worthy of the decoration.
