Unit history shows that your man was a member of "A" Squadron. No further details I can discover in that book; although it contains much information about the unit's movements. 18H were an excellent outfit - despite Talana - and Stirling ("Our Regiments in SA") comments that ".. nothing could possibly have been finer or more valuable than its subsequent work."
A very good pair of medals! Thank you for showing them. When I saw the subject title, I assumed he was one of the ill-fated group captured at the Battle of Talana, but to find that his capture was much later makes him an unusual 18th Hussars casualty and his medals are therefore a rarity.
