With regard to the Mafeking group to Captain P B Clements, Cape Police, that are being sought by the family, I came across a reference to them being in the National Museum, Rhodesia, in 1974. A long time ago, but that may be a starting point.

The pair to Snowden requires further scrutiny. I could not find him on the roll for the SALH and, despite it being mentioned that he was WIA at Elandslaagte, he does not have that clasp to the medal in the photo provided.

Likewise, he should have the DoL clasp and not that for the Relief?
