Thank you David
I think this makes sense because there are files in SA Archives relating to a Bond 1896, legal action and insolvency in 1896, and a file for 1918 which may relate to death .
I will keep researching and add if I manage to find more.
Colin Walker's Mafeking Siege Register shows "H. McCallum of MTG" as being mentioned in Siege Slip 31 of 18/12 as being a witness in Quinlan's trial 'heard him to admit being Fenian". H. McCallum was previously manager of the Refreshment Bar at the railway station.

QSA (1) Defence of Mafeking (Pte. R. Wright. Mafeking C.C.) officially re-impressed naming as usual to unit
Christie’s, October 1991.
The Mafeking Cadet Corps comprised of young lads in their early teens and they were in effect the original Boy Scouts whose work during the siege had a great impression on Baden Powell. Just 39 Medals, all with the single clasp for Defence of Mafeking, were issued to the Cadet Corps, with the medal roll dated 14 January 1905. Given the small number of awards, and the fact that they were in effect ‘late issues’, the naming on the medals to the Mafeking Cadet Corps is invariably re-impressed, with the medals taken from the supply of returned and unclaimed awards.
Reuben Wright joined the Mafeking Cadet Corps on 1 March 1899, and was aged 14 at the Defence of Mafeking.
