D.Lowe was also present at Erzungayan Mtn ( several spellings ) where Lt & Adj Frederick John Cokayne Frith was shot and killed in a futile cavalry charge through a Mealie Field on the 5th June 1879.

What is interesting is that Drury-Lowe only participated in AZW by accident. He had actually retired from the army on half-pay when the then Commanding Officer 17th Lancers, Colonel Thomas Gonne shot himself and Drury-Lowe was recalled to command his regiment in South Africa.

He survived after the bullet was extracted from his thigh. Colonel Thomas Gonne went on half-pay then took a staff employment. He died in 1886 while still serving.

"On 5th June 1879, a portion of the regiment under Col D.C. Drury-Lowe was engaged in their first skirmish with the enemy near the Upoko River when Lt Frith was shot through the heart. His body was brought into the camp on the Nondweni River and buried that same evening. He was followed to the grave by all his brother officers, and by most of the officers in camp, including Lord Chelmsford, General Newdigate, and staff."

I did take some photos of the area and of Frith's Grave when I was there in May 2016 , he shares a plot with 2 or 3 others who are unidentified .

His brother Richard Curzon Sherwin Drury-Lowe served with Lonsdales Horse as a Captain and later as a Sergeant in the CMR. He had previously held commissions in the 52nd Light Infantry and 10th Hussars. From England after the AZW he applied for a commission in the CMR but wan't successful so he joined as a First class-Private in July 1880. He was still serving in 1884 and died in 1906.
