38B/1944 Pte Arthur Bancroft was with a Detachment of the 99th serving on St. Helena. I only have a copy of the May 1879 pay-list for that detachment. They are not listed in any of the Regiment's main lists until 1880 when they returned, dated 14/01/1880.

Looking at the Officer's days at sea it would seem they were there from mid January 1879 so he never served in the Zulu war yet alone invalided back from it.
