"Henry Johnson is confirmed as having seen service as a Private (No.3498) with the 3rd Battalion, 60th Rifles, later the King's Royal Rifle Corps, being present during the Zulu War in South Africa which lasted from  11th January to 1st September 1879, the 3/60th Rifles being present at the battle of Gingindlovu on 2nd April 1879 when Lord Chelmsford destroyed a Zulu army on his route to defeating the Zulu nation at Ulundi.

Johnson would have remained with the 3/60th Rifles in South Africa and was then present during the disastrous First Anglo-Boer War, the battalion being present in the battles of Laing's Nek, Ingogo River and Majuba Mountain. Posted together with his battalion to Egypt he was then present during the operations in 1882, and remaining out their, was present in the Suakin operations between 19th February and 26th March 1884 during which time he was present in the battle of El-Teb on 29th February 1884 and the battle of Tamaai on 13th March 1884."
