I had a look for "3709 Tpr. W.Cope SALH" in the Palmer casualty roll and no luck. I had a look in my Cavalry CD and there are only x2 "W.Copes" on that; 4314 Cpl and 4615 Pte and both from 12th Lancers. A mystery, indeed.

QSA (1) Belf (4159 Pte. W. Muckersie, 10th. Hussars)
William Muckersie served with the 10th Hussars in South Africa during the Boer War, and died of disease at Rustenberg on 24 December 1900. The published casualty roll lists him as ‘Mackersie’ in the 9th Lancers. Believed to be just 9 single ‘Belfast’ clasps to the 10th Hussars, all to men on attachment to the 6th Dragoons.
