On 13-May-13 at 09:44:09 BST, seller added the following information:

I was informed by a very reliable source that Trooper P.MABENDA is a confirmed native casualty at the Battle of Isandhlwana. Fighting on the side of the British Forces

On 15-May-13 at 08:30:03 BST, seller added the following information:

I received confirmation that Trooper MABENDA was with SHEPSTONE NATIVE HORSE and was killed at ULUNDI. Not ISANDHLWANA as earlier suggested. It therefore makes sense that Sir Theophilus Shepstone commissioned these medals to be made & named.
