    Default T.E.Lawrence

    On this day in 1935 T.E.Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) was fatally injured in a motorbike crash in Dorset.

    Thomas Edward Lawrence, born in Tremadog, Caernarfonshire, gained fame as a leader of an Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during World War One. Lawrence embraced Arabic culture in an attempt to empathise with his Arab partners and it was this ability which made him such a successful military leader.

    Winston Churchill said of Lawrence, "I deem him one of the greatest beings alive in our time... We shall never see his like again. His name will live in history. It will live in the annals of war... It will live in the legends of Arabia."

    One of the best Movies i have ever seen was Lawrence of Arabia (Peter O Toole) wonderful entertainment to the last!
    Loved the start on his Motor Cycle but not the Tragic Ending of that.

    Thanks

    Yes Vernon, he certainly was a very interesting man, the kind that e do not see so much of today.

    Saw the movie a couple of times, once on the deck crossing the Indian Ocean.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Life is too short to blend in.
