I can find only one reference to this. Does anyone have more to add?

KILLED BY LIONS.
A Central News message from Durban states that a trooper of Strathcona's Horse and a native attached to the corps were killed by lions in the Selati district last week.

Hi Berenice...…

Checked Strathcona casualty list and daily routine orders for the period a month either side of date and cannot find anything..... There was a notice in the August orders about lost and stolen kit...….
