These are the references that I have found on the South African Archives site (NAAIRS):
www.national.archsrch.gov.za
He died in 1944 in Natal and was married to Elizabeth Ellen Beattie, who died in 1953.
They married in Escourt, Natal on 7 February 1914, he was about 38yrs and she was 34yrs of age.

Reference "South Africa, Natal Province, Civil Marriages, 1845-1955," database with images, FamilySearch ( familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KDCR-WSR : 10 March 2018), Charles Gordon Fisher and Elizabeth Ellen Beattie, 07 Feb 1914; citing Estcourt, Natal, South Africa; 00531; National Archives and Records Service of South Africa, Pretoria; 1,795,574."

The middle reference shows that the Magistrate of Weenen requested deputation for sergeant Charles Gordon Fisher in 1901.

It looks like 26 DoL clasps earned by the NVTS but many were returned.
