Does anyone know the name of Durnfords Orderly??

I have this

Harry Davies caught his last glimpse of his commanding officer that day . Durnford was out near the firing line , an isolated and deeply forlorn figure , and ' his mounted orderly was standing before him with a drawn sword and the zulus all around '


Cheers

Cpl N.Mansfield is understood to have been detached from 7th Company RE to act as Col Durnfords orderly and wagon driver.

I'm sure I read somewhere that he was Durnford Batman. And that he would never have had a sword with him. Of course he could have found one up.
