Lord Horatio Herbert Kitchener

1850 – 1916 (Life Span)

1871–1916 (Military Service)

Kitchener was a senior British Army Officer and colonial administrator who gained notoriety for his imperial campaigns. During the First World War his recruitment campaign became iconic and to this day is seen as not only a call for recruitment to the army, but also to the general public to help in the War Effort throughout the UK. After the Metropolitan Police moved from Great Scotland Yard in 1890, the site became the headquarters for the Royal Military Police, where Kitchener was stationed during his recruitment campaign.
