Battle of Teba

I'm looking for help with a question of the origin 
of my family's crest.  Sinclairs are involved in the
story as well.

In the early 1300s, James Douglas was tasked with 
carrying Robert Bruce's heart to Jerusalem.  They were 
waylaid in Andulusia and James was killed in an action 
referred to as the battle of Teba.

My father has come on a reference that suggests a Moir was 
there and was knighted for his action.  

I'm looking for any confirming evidence or references.  
Any pointers most appreciated.
