Lord Kitchener will be fondly remembered by the hundreds of Kitchener Scholars who met him at the events organised by the Kitchener Scholars' Association of which he was the
President for many years.

Despite difficulty in walking, he attended the Remembrance Day Parade in November 2011 to greet Scholars and their families.
