Henderson couldnt have taken part in the zulu war as he wasnt born till 1863 ! , also he didnt graduate till 1882 ! . Possibly you didnt realise there are two men in this post ? . The chap in the second part of your post Lt - Col Anthony Lennon Brown certainly did take part in the AZW , being Surgeon - major and listed as being at the battle of Ulundi in Mackinnon & Shadbolt .
