A plaque on the rotunda commemorates Earl Kitchener who was a British military leader and statesmen who, as secretary of state for war in the first years of World War One, organised armies on an unprecedented scale and was represented on one of the most famous recruitment posters ever produced.

At the end of 1909, Field-Marshal Earl Kitchener visited Australia at the invitation of the Government, and after inspection of the military forces and the forts and defence works erected or in course of erection, reported upon the whole scheme of land defence.
