Sir Robert George Caldwell Kinahan, ERD (24 September 1916 – 2 May 1997) was a politician, businessman and a senior member of the Orange Order in Northern Ireland. In his obituary, he was described as one of the last of the "county elite" to remain a high-ranking member of the Orange Order during the turbulent years of The Troubles, when it became potentially dangerous to belong. In his personal life he deplored bigotry and was almost expelled from the Orange Order for having attended a Roman Catholic funeral service. 

His Excellency The Lord Wakehurst, John de Vere Loder, 2nd Baron Wakehurst was Governor of Northern Ireland 1952-1964. 

Lieutenant-General Sir Richard Neville Anderson KCB CBE DSO (28 September 1907 – 4 September 1979) was a senior officer of the British Army who served in the Second world War and later achieved high office in the 1960s. He was General Officer Commanding-in-Chief Northern Ireland Command in 1963 and he retired in 1965.
