Admiral Jellicoe's farewell to Lord Kitchener
A photograph of Admiral John Rushworth Jellicoe (1859-1935) bidding farewell to Field-Marshal Horatio Herbert Kitchener (1850-1916) before his embarkation aboard the H.M.S. Hampshire, bound for Russia. Kitchener (third figure from right) was made Secretary of State for War in 1914 and was drowned when the Hampshire struck a mine off Orkney and sank on the 5th June 1916. Admiral Jellicoe is seen standing beside Kitchener, shaking hands with Hugh James O'Beirne of the Foreign Office, who also perished in the sinking. Jellicoe was appointed Command-in-Chief of the Grand Fleet in 1914 and was promoted to First Sea Lord following the battle of Jutland in 1916.
