In the biographies of the iSandlwana casualties, the "effects" were often claimed by the mother, father or other kin and the above phrase is repeated often.
Given that these soldiers had generally been in Africa for several years, what kinds of items or "effects" belonging to these soldiers would there have been to claim from the depot?

I remember reading that all of Durnfords effects were sold before the Colenso family could claim them.

Which was a good thing, considering he was married previously.

The effects that Shepstone took from his body, knife, rings ect, were given to the Colenso's and they
sent them on to his family in England.
