Murray had been very ineffectual as CIGS, suffering not necesserily from lack of brains but from having control, with Kitchener poking his nose in all the time. Murray proved that as an administrator in Eygpt he could lay the ground for a good military commander to succeed as Allenby found out when he took over in 1917.

Wully Robertson, as a consequence of realising that Kitchner had too much control where he really shouldn't, got great power/control concessions from him and made it a requisite of his taking the job.

Unfortunately Wully was no politician and eventually the wiley (thats the polite word!) Lloyd-George would see him out.
