Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Why not try [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] name search - I think you will find 15 Tpr Richard Wilson Parker

He is also listed on the Australian War Memorial site:

Sorry, I forgot to mention - if you click on the unit name against his entry on the ABW site, it will reveal details of their operations in SA.

Thanks Kenny
I bought a kist at a local antiques fair and inside was a small wooden draw with a broken lock, after eventually opening the medal was found inside.
Now to try and trace him to see if there any relatives.
Something to do over Xmas

Frank,

I regret I do have access to Australian Family History records - however I have found a Richard Wilson Parker (died 7 May 1919), son of Richard Parker (died 1896), buried in Melbourne General Cemetery. May not be your man.
