Actually, CJ did a little 'write up', based on that.

I'll dig it up.

Thank you for that UBW, articles about TEL always interest me. Not just because of the motorcycle angle, but my Grandfather was seconded from Allenby's campaign to the 'party in the desert' as he called it. Not as anyone of importance, he was an enlisted man minding some kind of weaponry. He did once say that it was nice of Lawrence to mention him at the beginning of 'Seven Pillars..', even if only in passing, and he might have meant the other fellow anyway.

TE Lawrence has always been one of my heroes........ There is something about Brit society that spawns these extraordinary men, individual men who come from seemingly nowhere and go out and engage in "great enterprises;" they kind of streak across the sky, and then die out like meteors...... Lawrence, Shackleton, Mallory, Churchill, Lord Horatio Nelson, Francis Drake..... the list is endless. I call it my cult of "The Great Brit!" Lawrence is among the wildest of them -- scholar, soldier, writer, motorcyclist, and, ultimately, the tragic hero............ Love the guy! Or at least I love the idea of the guy.........





Lawrence on one of his Broughs.......
