Less a need to decipher, more to marvel at how this person writes the letters h, m, and n.

Looks like:

Sixth May 1942
Carrington Street Mafeking
Carrington Street Mafeking
Mafeking Cemetery

There is still a Carrington Street in Mafikeng.

How about ..

Lee Metford bullet hit him while in action - at Lindley - He was on duty at the time

It occurred while in battle on duty which was not exceptional

Not sure about that last word. 'Exceptional' does appear in the text for pt 13.
