Interetsing comment about there being two of them.

Natal Witness 27th February 1879
A correspondant of the Mercury states that a wagon conductor named Dubois was amongst those killed on the 22nd ult. There were two of that name at the front. As we have previously stated it is to be feared that many other camp followers are not yet  accounted for.

Conductor Edmund Ormond Lionel Du BOIS civilian attached to Army Commissariat and Transport Department
It is recorded in ‘Sheila Henderson’s Notes’ in the Talana Museum (AZW 16200) that ‘Edmond’ (born 1846), brother to Louis Phillippe, Du Bois declined to join No. 3 Column as a conductor but later changed his mind and accompanied the Column to Isandhlwana. Since he lived until 1919 he must have escaped the massacre.
Although the Witness states that there were two of that name at the front, it doesn't say that both were at Isandhlwana. Edmund could have been farther back in Natal on a convoy.

No need to ask.
The Dubois brothers have already been investigated and discussed last year.
Information can be found here in case anyone would like to know a little more.
