Lord Kitchener

Herbert Lord Kitchener was a hero of the Great War; he was drowned when the ship HMS Hampshire carrying him on a mission to Russia hit a German mine and sank. His body was never recovered. Alfred Lord Tennyson wrote the tribute to him that is printed on this card. His face is of course familiar to us from the famous recruiting poster "Your Country Needs You."
