    Hi Peter,

    The National archives of Australia have several files regarding Parker and Holmes.
    Parker had as service nr. 427933
    Holmes had as service nr. 420946

    Of one of these files is available as a digital copy:

    best regards

    Hi Peter,

    The link Luc offered you takes you to their site. Click on "request copy" and follow the instructions. If you also click on the box that says "I will not be making use of this in Australia" they do not charge you Australian sales tax, bring the cost of each file down to $15.00 AUD or about 9 .

    You should keep in mind that not all service files at the NAA have photographs. As of late I have been seeing about 70% having some form of photo, the other 30% nothing.

    Parker's A9301 is already digitized. Go to the same link, click on "view digital copy". There is no photo in the file.

    Regards,

    Dave
