Lowsley to his sister in Berkshire bearing previously unrecorded K.E.VII 2a. left half vertical bisect tied by fine fleuron c.d.s.

The bisect was not accepted by the authorities, a pencil circle added alongside together with Protectorate's "T" in circle mark and large London "1D/F.B.B./B." handstamp. Lionel Dewe Lowsley (1866-1936) was born in Hampstead Norris, Berks., the son of a wealthy landowner. He joined the Colonial Service in 1901 as a medical officer, stationed first in Uganda (1902-12) and subsequently in Kenya (1912-16). On June 26 1906 Mbarara was officially declared a township and in his medical report for the Ankole district that year Lowsley provided a fascinating description of the mud built civil quarters as well as the ill effects of 'muhinyo', a native disease prevalent in the district, which he identified as a local variant of dengue fever. He retired in 1916 due to ill-health and died in Mombasa on 11 May 1936, his wife Marion being subsequently granted a compassionate pension. Lowsley's brother Horace stayed in Hampstead Norris as its vicar, the benefice having been inherited from their father by elder brother Lionel, living in the vicarage with their surviving younger sister Naomi Ella, a lifelong spinster. •ÈÀThe property of another vendor and a new discovery.
