Ulundi,

Moorhead was awarded his DCM at Ulundi.
During the battle Moorhead was severely wounded in the right foot by a rifle bullet. Although he was severely wounded he refused to go to the field hospital and continued to prepare cartridges under fire for ½ hour.

The correspondent of the Natal Witness reporting the battle wrote, a gunner of the name of Moorhead attracted special notice. He was wounded in the leg and rendered incapable of remaining at his gun. He was, however, determined not to remain idle, for when safe inside the square he crawled to where the drums of the Gatling battery were being filled with cartridges and insisted on helping the sergeant to charge them

Brief service details
enlisted at Sunderland 4/10/76
3/10/77 stationed in Mauritius
28th March 1879 arrived in South Africa
15/10/79 Back to Mauritius
2/10/80 \Stationed at The Cape of Good Hope
4/10/83 invalided out of the army due to complications caused by Syphilis contracted in Mauritius.

medal entitlement SAGs 1879 and DCM currently in private hands.

Regards

Sergio
