Sub-Lieutenant Frederick Tower Hamilton landed at Durban on 7 March 1879 as part of the Naval Brigade contingent from HMS Shah. On 14 March “Shah’s” men arrived at the Lower Tugela and were ferried across the river where they camped next to Fort Tenedos.

On the 29th of March Hamilton and the rest of the men of “Shah” were with the first division of Chelmsfords’s Relief Column when it set out for Fort Eshowe. On the 2nd of April Hamilton was at the Battle of Gingindlovu, serving at either the Southeast or Southwest corner of the square where the sailors of “Shah” were positioned.

After the Relief of Eshowe, Hamilton served with the portion of the Naval Brigade at Camp Gingindlovu. It was there that he came down with a fever and was sent down to the hospital at Fort Pearson on the 10th of May. On 29 May 1879 Hamilton was discharged back to the “Shah.”

For his service in the Zulu War Hamilton was ‘mentioned in despatches’ and received the South Africa Medal with the “1879” clasp.

On 6 November 1879 Hamilton was promoted to Lieutenant.

"Hamilton entered the Navy in 1869 and served in the Bristol in the West Indies, 1870 to 1871, and then in the Ariadne in the Mediterranean, 1872. From 1877 to 1878 he served in the Martin training brig on a cruise to the West Indies. In 1878 he joined the Liffey which sailed to Coquimbo where the crew took over the Shah. On the return voyage Hamilton thus found himself as part of the Naval Brigade in the Zulu War of 1879, for which service he was mentioned in despatches. He was also made a lieutenant in this year. He then served in the Mediterranean in the Thunderer until 1881. In 1892 he was made a commander and appointed to the Hood, 1893 to 1896, in the Mediterranean. He was promoted to captain in 1898. In 1907 he was made rear-admiral and from 1914 to 1916 was Second Sea Lord. He then became Commander-in-Chief, Rosyth, in which command he died."
