He entered the First Royals June 1874, being promoted Lieutenant in the 10th Hussars May 1876, Captain February 1884, Brevet Major 1885, and Major August 1892.  He was transferred to the 2nd Dragoon Guards in January 1897, and was selected to command the 12th Lancers in December 1897.  Lord Airlie served with the 10th Hussars in the Afghan War 1878-79, and was present at the attack of All Musjid and in the engagement at Futtehabad, receiving the medal with clasp.  He took part in the Soudan Expedition in 1884, as adjutant of the 10th Hussars, and was present at the engagement at Tamai, and was granted the medal with clasp, Khedive's star, and the Fourth Class of the Medjidie.  He served in the Nile Expedition of 1884-85 as Brigade Major under Sir Herbert Stewart, was present at the action of Abu Klea (slightly wounded) also at the engagements at Abu Klea Wells on February 16th and 17th, 1885, and in the reconnaissance to Metammeh (slightly wounded) being twice mentioned in despatches.  For these services he received the brevet of Major and two clasps to his medal.  Lord Airlie was specially mentioned in despatches for gallantry at Modder River and Magersfontein by Lieutenant General Lord Methuen, who reported that Lord Airlie "did excellent work with two dismounted squadrons when good service was much needed".  By Lord Arlie's action a threatened flank attack of the enemy was held back.  In the beginning of May 1900, he took an active part in the fighting around Brandford, where he was wounded, again assuming command of his regiment in a fortnight, after having been nursed at Bloemfontein by Lady Airlie.  He was three times mentioned in despatches, LG, February 8th, 1901, Field Marshall Earl Roberts expressing his regret at the loss of the "gallant Earl of Airlie" who fell at the head of his regiment.  Lord Airlie was honorary Colonel of the 3rd (Dundee Highland) V Battalion of the Black Watch.  He succeeded to the title in 1881, and was a Scottish Representative Peer.  Lord Airlie married in 1886 Lady Mabel Frances Elizabeth Gore, eldest daughter of the Earl of Arran and sister of Viscountess Cranbourne and Lady Esther Smith; and left three sons and three daughters.  The heir, David Lyulph Gore Wolseley, Lord Ogilvy was born in 1893.
