Decals only apply to what they overlap - so basically you would have to group the decal and object THEN instance, or repeat the instancing with identical values for the decal so one appears in every place the instance of the object appears. Main thing to remember is a decal is an object, so although it only affects the material, it does not act like a material but an object :)

Try making the Decal a child of the original mesh and then make that the instance. This method is certainly working here. :)
