    People mention the late Earl Kitchener, and associate him with the Boer War. It seems, his ideas on military reforms were relevant, because the laboratory was the Indian Army. Mention Earl Herbert Kitchener, and people think about military reforms, and his struggle in the British Parliament. The British Army in England, did not need reforms. Why did it? It seems, parliament in England, had to be convinced about it, because finances were involved. The House of Commons did not need to think about how the soldier used his rifle. I really don't see, how the Earl was bad for India, even though I am looking for some explanation, perhaps, not required. He fought the opponents of reform in the British Parliament, because of the Indian Army. The British Army in England, before World War Two, consisted of very few divisions.
