A researcher friend of mine thought she had posted the following but hadn't. Could anyone assist with information?

I am trying to find any information on Lieutenant A P Hillier who served in Bowkers Rovers.
He is listed in Don Forsyth’s roll for the 1877-1879 medal under that unit.
I am trying to confirm that he was killed in action 11 March 1878.

I found the following entry on this site for a Lieutenant Hillier.
Is this likely to be the same man?
Any help would be appreciated.
Regards
Audrey
Rhino Research


Lieutenant Hillier, Lonsdale’s Natal Native Contingent. (NNC)
At half past seven a.m. Lt. Veriker [sic] of the NNC who was on picquet duty with Captain Barry rode into camp and reported to Colonel Pulleine that the Zulus were advancing on the camp in large numbers. 6

This report corroborates that of Lt. Higginson, in that Zulu deployment was taking place in the open and in view of the camp’s outposts.
The words advancing on the camp are unambiguous and show aggressive intent to attack. Note the time: 0730 hrs 22nd January.

Bonsoir,
Lieutenant H. Hillier, 2/3 NNC was with the Central Column in January 1879.
The 22 January 1879, he was with Lord Chelmsford in the Mangeni.
A letter (undated) written by him to his father was published (in particular) in the Telegraph and Eastern Province Standard, 28 February 1879.

Cheers
Frédéric

There's a Trooper A.P.Hillier entitled to medal and clasp 77-78 in Forsythe's Book on the Bowkers Rovers Roll . He's the only Hillier in that unit .
