    Private James John Parker, who is reported to have been missing since June 5, is the elder son of Mr. J. W. Parker, Brunswick Buildings, Queen Street. His father has a long record of active service, including the Matabele war, the Spanish-American war, and the South African war, in which he served on the staff of General French. When war was declared Private Parker immediately volunteered, and was one of those accepted at the first medical examination of recruits for the 3rd, Auckland, Company. His brother is a member of the fifth reinforcements. Private Parker was born in the United States, was taken to England by his parents, and accompanied them to New Zealand about six years ago. He lived for some time in Hawke's Bay, where he played in representative football and hockey. He was for some time in the employ of Messrs. Wilson and Horton. (Auckland Weekly News, 1 July 1915, p. 20) AWMM
