Admiral of the Fleet
Lord Mountbatten of Burma

Admiral of the Fleet Louis Francis Albert Victor Nicholas Mountbatten, 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma, (born Prince Louis of Battenberg; 25 June 1900 – 27 August 1979), known informally as Lord Mountbatten, was a British statesman and naval officer, an uncle of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and second cousin once removed to Elizabeth II. During the Second World War, he was Supreme Allied Commander, South East Asia Command (1943–46).
He was the last Viceroy of India (1947) and the first Governor-General of the independent Dominion of India (1947–48), from which the modern Republic of India was to emerge in 1950.
From 1954 until 1959 he was First Sea Lord, a position that had been held by his father, Prince Louis of Battenberg, some forty years earlier.
Thereafter he served as Chief of the Defence Staff until 1965, making him the longest serving professional head of the British Armed Forces to date.
During this period Mountbatten also served as Chairman of the NATO Military Committee for a year.
In 1979, Mountbatten was killed by the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA), which had placed a bomb in his fishing boat, at Mullaghmore, County Sligo, in Ireland.

Field Marshal Lord Haig

Field Marshal Douglas Haig, 1st Earl Haig, (19 June 1861 – 29 January 1928) was a senior officer of the British Army.
During the First World War he commanded the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) on the Western Front from late 1915 until the end of the war.
He was commander during the Battle of the Somme, the battle with one of the highest casualties in British military history, the Third Battle of Ypres, and the Hundred Days Offensive, which led to the armistice of 11 November 1918.
Although he had gained a favourable reputation during the immediate post-war years, with his funeral becoming a day of national mourning, Haig has since the 1960s become an object of criticism for his leadership during the First World War.
He was nicknamed "Butcher Haig" for the two million British casualties endured under his command.
It has been commented that, 'His epic but costly offensives at the Somme (1916) and Passchendaele (1917) have become nearly synonymous with the carnage and futility of First World War battles.'
