He served both as Assistant-Surgeon and Surgeon in the 24th Regiment of Infantry. On becoming Deputy Surgeon-General in 1876 he was posted as principal medical officer of the Dublin division of the army in Ireland, and from there, in 1879, be was transferred to South Africa for duty. He received the appointment of principal medical officer of the force which was sent out to that country afterthe disaster of Isandhula, and served in that capacity during the Zulu war and the Sekukuni. For his services during this period he was gazetted to a Companionship of the Bath.

He returned to England towards the close of the year 1S81, and in the spring of the year 1882 was appointed principal medical officer at Netley.

Holloway, C.B., principal medical officer of this establishment, which took place at 4 A.M. this morning (April 19th), after a very short but painful illness. In Dr. Holloway Netley Hospital has lost a most capable administrator, and his department a true friend, who most jealously guardled its honours, its privileges, and its rights. To the medical officers of the army, and of this hospital in particular, Sir Charles Pearson desires to express his sincere regret at the loss their profession has so unexpectedly incurred, and, in the name of all under his command, he begs to offer his heartfelt sympathy with Mrs. Holloway in the affliction which has overtaken her with such awful suddenness."
