I did quick Google-search for "Parker Hale rifles". There seems to be a LOT of info at quick glance. What specifically are you looking for, or wanting to know?
I am NOT a Parker Hale follower. I am just curious as to what more you are looking for besides the quick Google search that I did.

I’ve long had a penchant for the the Lee-Enfield. I grew up in England and a .303 Lee-Enfield was the first rifle I ever fired. As I recall I was about eight years old and my Dad had taken me to the “Navy Days” at Chatham. The Navy were providing people with the opportunity to Continue Readingrevivaler.com
I have pictures of everything even the private numbers under the stock I was waiting for someone that knows more than I to ask for them to maybe find out her pastIf you take some photos of the rifle and all the numbers and roll marks etc. somebody might be able to track it down.
Good luck. The research is part of the enjoyment.
I would very much like to have a large Parker Hale collection my son has 2 Parker Hale's one in 308 and a 30/06 he loves them I got him turned on to Parkers and he is always on the lookout they are really good shooting riflesI had one in .308 years ago. Shot prarie dogs with the iron sights with it.
As mentioned above, post pictures of the markings—especially the proof marks—and we can help date it.
Emailing the Proof House (either of them) is a good idea, but it won’t work— they are not in the business of providing info on rifles. They are busy enough with their proof work.
But the markings can give you a date range. If you can see all the markings, might be possible to get a specific year. But start with some general pics and let’s see where we are at.
Those particular barrel proofs were in use 1954-1984. We can probably narrow it down if you can tell me what are the numbers and letters in that small stamp just to the right of the "Tons per [square inch]" . It looks like crossed scepters, and there will be two letters and a number on the left-right-bottom of those crossed scepters. In your photo, I can see they are present, but I cannot make them out from the pic.Sorry the one picture is of my 270 and not the Parker Hale 06
I just got home from work and I have her torn down and the magnifying glass out and the stamp says V on the left and B on the right and 3 on the bottomThose particular barrel proofs were in use 1954-1984.
