Lord Kitchener Born June 24th

Horatio Herbert Kitchener was born June 24th, 1850 in Bally Longford, County Kerry, Ireland. Yes, he may have been engaged to Hermione Baker, who died young, and may have no good luck in courting Lord Londonderry's daughter, Helen Mary Theresa. Lord Kitchener had a constant male companion in Captain Oswald Fitzgerald and gathered around him a group of young, unmarried officers unofficially named Kitchener's band of boys. Great Britain as an empire owes a huge debt to Kitchener.
