South Africa Medal (Zulu) clasp 1879, Long Service & Good Conduct Medal Victoria to Sergeant Thomas Pettitt, 2nd Battalion 21st Regiment (Royal Scots Fusiliers a labourer from Bury St Edmonds who enlisted in November 1860. the day after his brother. At the battle of Ulundi the Regiment formed a portion of the right of the square and with the 58th Regiment 'Bore the brunt of the first desperate onslaught of the enemy, large numbers of whom got to within 30 yards before being checked by the galling and destructive fire that poored into them' Discharged medically unfit in August 1880 following his return to England from the Transvaal"

In the engagement Brevet Lt Colonel R W C Winsloe was severely wounded in the chest, on the breakup of the Square the Battalion proceeded to the Transvaal.
