The full circumstances of the death of Pte. Parkington are not known to this archive. The date of his death coincides with that of the evacuation of allied forces from Crete. Elements of Layforce were engaged in a rearguard action whilst the evacuation took place. 
 
The CWGC list him by his Regiment only. His name is however recorded on the Westminster Abbey Commando ROH as being a member of Layforce.  His name is therefore held on our ROH in the hope that further information establishing, or otherwise, any Commando service will come to light in the future.
