London Gazette 27.9.1901.
Squadron Sergeant E. Mander, D.C.M., was decorated for his gallantry near Johannesburg on 28.5.1900.
'There was more serious blood-letting before the "Gold City" of Johannesburg was captured. French's cavalry made a sweep to the west of the city and on May 28th the Black Horse came under very heavy fire from Krupps, "Long Toms" and "pompoms" while crossing the Klip River at Zuurbekom. One shell burst among a Troop of C Squadron killing six horses, while another horse, ridden by Colonel Lowe's guide, had one hind leg practically blown off. Seeing the wretched animal struggling to keep up with its mates with blood gushing from the wound, Captain Haig calmly halted and gave it the coup de grace with his revolver. Young Trumpeter Evans distinguished himself by dismounting and rescuing a badly wounded man, as also did Captain Newman and S.S.M. Mander' (History of the 4th/7th Dragoon Guards refers).
