Brigadier-General d'Arcy Charles Brownlow, C.M.G., C.I.E., was born in October 1869 and was educated at King's College School and the Royal Military College, Sandhurst. Originally commissioned into the Leinsters in September 1889, he transferred into the Indian Staff Corps as a Lieutenant in December 1891. Subsequently appointed to the 21st Punjabis, Brownlow saw active service on the North West Frontier between 1897-98, and was present at Malakand, Utman Khel, Buner and at the capture of the Tanga Pass. Advanced to Captain in September 1900, he was again in action in the same theatre of war in the operations of 1908, when he served in the Mohmand country. The outbreak of hostilities in August 1914 found him in the rank of Major and he went on to witness extensive service, and gain rapid promotion, in the Mesopotamian operations, adding a C.M.G. and C.I.E. to a tally of six 'Mentions' and his Order of St. Stanislaus, the latter being verified in Hurley's Russian Orders. Placed on the Retired List in 1919, the General died in Hove, Sussex in March 1938.
