The Star attraction at the Museum is without doubt the uniform of Field Marshal Herbert Charles Onslow Plumer, 1st Viscount Plumer, GCB, GCMG GCVO GBE.

After commanding V Corps at the Second Battle of Ypres in April 1915, he took command of the Second Army in May 1915 and in June 1917 won an overwhelming victory over the German Army at the Battle of Messines, He later served as Commander-in-Chief of the British Army of the Rhine and then as Governor of Malta before becoming High Commissioner of the British Mandate for Palestine in 1925 and retiring in 1928.
