Apparently wounded trying to get out from Eshowe?

Crawley and District Observer - Saturday 18 September 1943

1879 clasp

And here he is mentioned in despatches

"SUPPLEMENT TO THE LONDON GAZETTE, MAY 16,1879. 3453

Connected with the vedette duties, I wish to mention a circumstance which I think reflects great credit upon Captain Sherrington, Native Contingent, and the undermentioned men, viz.:—
Corporal Adams, Native Contingent, Privates Whale, Robson, Higley and Keys, 99th Regiment,and Trooper Garlands, Victoria Mounted Rifles.The vedettes, shortly after our arrival at Ekowe, were daily annoyed when they patrolled in the morning, before finally taking up their posts, by the fire of a party of Zulus from a high bill. It was believed that this party took up their position very early in the morning, and Captain Sherrington and the above party volunteered to go out at night and lie in wait for them behind some rocks near the top of the hill, being utterly ignorant, however, of the number of the Zulus.
I consented, and this little expedition resulted in 3 Zulus being wounded (though not so seriously as to prevent them making good their escape),
and the vedettes never being annoyed from this hill again.
In fact, no Zulu was ever afterwards seen there. I must not conclude this letter without publicly acknowledging the devotion to their duties of the Reverends R. Robertson and A.Walsh, Church of England and Roman Catholic Chaplains, respectively. The former was also my political assistant, and I owe him many thanks for his valuable advice and information upon all subjects connected with Zululand.
I have, &c.
C. K. PEARSOX, Colonel,
Commanding No. 1 Column"
