The anniversary of Lawrence of Arabia’s death

80 years today T E Lawrence died in a motorcycle accident near his home in Dorset. To remember him on this anniversary, here is a photo of him with his friend and biographer, Basil Liddell Hart. The Liddell Hart papers are rich with papers and images by and relating to Lawrence.

More photos taken by Lawrence of medieval military architecture in France, taken during his degree studies at Jesus College, Oxford, plus photographs taken in the Middle East during his pre-war career as an archaeologist, can all be seen on our Serving Soldier website.
