J. Buckley of Natal Light Horse Regiment, WWI

Surnames: Buckley, Nel
I have a medal that belonged to my husband's maternal South African grandfather. It is the 1914/15 Star, a campaign medal of the British Empire, awarded during WWI.

The back is engraved as follows:
PTE
J. BUCKLEY
NTL, LIGHT HSE

Unfortunately, this (and the fact that his wife's surname was Nel) is all the information I have about the gentleman, I do not even know his full first name.

Can anyone tell me how I can use this limited information to further my search for my husband's family? I have already tried the British National Archives at Kew and found nothing that was helpful.

Thanks in advance for any possible assistance.
