A very dubious account of Comberton’s actions in South Africa 22-23/1/1879 were published in Essex Countryside Magazine April 1966. Interesting to note that he did not arrive in South Africa until May 1879 as he was part of the draft aboard the Clyde which left Woolwich on 1 March 1879.

He died at 150a Keppel Road, East Ham, London, England 3/1/1919 aged 68 years. Buried in Old East Ham Cemetery, Norman Road, East Ham.
