Join curator Justin Saddington as he tells the story of Captain Robert Parker, a remarkable soldier and chronicler of war.

Captain Robert Parker enjoyed a military career spanning 35 years. Joining what would later become known as the Royal Irish Regiment, Parker saw extensive service in the wars of King William III and the Duke of Marlborough during the 1690s and 1700s.

Throughout this time, he diligently kept a journal, in which he made accounts of many famous battles and sieges, including Aughrim (1691) and Blenheim (1704). This formed the basis of a memoir, which is regarded as one of the most important accounts by a soldier from this period.

In this talk, National Army Museum curator Justin Saddington will recount some of Parker’s career-defining moments and provide an insight into the life and times of this extraordinary soldier.
