On 28th March 1879 during the Zulu War in South Africa, Lieutenant Lysons, during the assault on the Inhlobane Mountain: Sir Evelyn Wood ordered that some Zulus be dislodged from a position, in some natural caves , where they were causing large losses. A delay occurred in the carrying out of this order so Captain Ronald Campbell of the Coldstream Guards, along with Lieutenant Lysons and Private Fowler ran forward with determination, advanced over a mass of fallen boulders, through walls of rock which lead to a cave where the Zulus lay hidden. As it was impossible for two men to walk side-by-side, they had to advance in single file with Captain Campbell leading. He was killed at the mouth of the cave. Lieutenant Lysons and Private Fowler dashed into the cave, which had subterranean passages leading off, and fired into the chasm below, succeeding in driving the enemy from the stronghold.

ON March 28, 1879, Sir Evelyn Wood, V.C., in command of the mounted men, taking part in the assault of the Inhlobane Mountain, noticed that much loss was being caused to our men by some Zulus who had taken up a strong position in some caves, from which they commanded the spot where some of our wounded were lying. He therefore ordered their dislodgment.

Some delay taking place in carrying it out, Captain the Honourable Ronald Campbell, Coldstream Guards, with Lieutenant Lysons and Private Edmund Fowler, advanced in a most courageous manner over a mass of fallen boulders and between rocks which led to a cave in which the enemy lay hidden. There being only room for one man to pass at a time, they had to advance in single file, and the first to reach the cave was Captain Campbell. On seeing him the Zulus fired, shooting him dead, upon which Lysons and Fowler sprang forward, and with great gallantry drove them from their stronghold. Afterwards Lysons remained at the cave's mouth while Captain Campbell's body was carried down the hill.

Lieut.-Colonel Lysons, son of the late Sir Daniel Lysons, of Crimean fame, was born at Morden, Surrey, on July 13, 1858. Educated at Wellington, he joined the 90th Light Infantry in 1878, serving through the Zulu War as A.D.C. to Sir Evelyn Wood, V.C., taking part in the affairs of Zungen Nek, and the Inhlobane Mountain, and the battles of Kambula and Ulundi, being twice mentioned in despatches and obtaining medal and clasp. Served through the Soudan War, 1884-5, obtaining medal, clasp and bronze star with Egyptian Army
