QSA (2) Talana, Defence of Ladysmith (5976 Pte. J. Donohoe, Rl. Irish Fus:) small cut to rim and light marks

Described as: Private J. Donohoe was wounded at Farquhar’s Farm, on Nicholson’s Nek, on 30 October 1899, and died of his wounds on Nicholson’s Nek on 5 November 1899.

This is not quite correct. He died of wounds in Ladysmith, 5 November 1899
