Can't find anything other that what LH has posted on this Chap serving in the Zulu War. But did find a paper showing he served in the Afghan War-1878-80. Unless this is a another McWatter's.

Not the man mentioned, but there may be a link, as this first man is also a Surgeon:

Google Obituaries

Lt Colonel Mathew, Robert Charles McWatters. M.B; F.R.C.S; I.M.S(Ret.). A former professor of surgery at Lucknow university, died on 18th June at Downton, Wiltshire; he was 95.

Served NW Frontier, WWI, with the Indian army in France 1914 - 1916, 1919 Afgan campaign, WWII in RAMC for duration, age 60.
Might be related to William above, with the Indian connection.

Another link may be the following:

Capt Gearge McWatters, he was born on 17th March, 1922 in India, the son of Lt Colonel George Alfred McWatters, who was of Northern Irish decent and had seen active service with the 81st Pioneers on the North West Frontier in 1897 - 98 and subsequently commanded the 10th battalion, 1st Madras Pioneers.
Capt G McWatters, the son, during the sixties established a television company, which by the late 1980s had become Harlech Television.
Looks as if the whole family is in India.

Another:

I have an Obituary for a John Alexander McWatters published in Maryborough, Queensland, Australia November 15, 1929. This might be the same John Alexander above, due to the Marborough connection.

There died in Ipswich yesterday an old Marborough boy in the person of John Alexander McWatters. The late Mr McWatters, then at the age of twelve months , with his parents, arrived in Marborough 67 years ago by the emigrant ship Mont - Morency"
