Trained at Sandhurst and then commissioned into the King's Royal Rifle Corps where he served for 16 years until 1894. Posted to Cairo in 1882 at the age of 24. Began collecting in 1884.

Myers bequeathed his collection to Eton , which he attended between 1871 and 1875. He returned to Eton, four years after retiring from the Army, as Adjutant to the Volunteers, a force made up of boys from the school. In 1898 he went back to the army and to South Africa where he was killed soon after.
