19th Hussars 1901-1903

I am trying to find details of a Charles Richard Johnson (b1880 Stockton, Durham) who enlisted in the Hussars of the Line (19th Hussars) in March 1901. I have his service record (from WO97) but am trying to find further details (travel, medals, campaigns etc).

His service number is 5200 and he was posted to South Africa from July 1902 to Nov 1903.

It seems he was only in the service for about 3 years which seems a relatively short period of time? I know he wasn't killed during the Boer War as he died in SA in 1940.

Thanks in advance,
