Thomas Edward Lawrence or Lawrence of Arabia as he is better known, is perhaps one of the most fascinating characters from the WW1 era.
Born in 1888 and tragically killed in a motorcycle accident in Dorset in 1935, he was an Archaeologist and an Officer in the British Army. His exploits during this period were famously portrayed in the 1962 film staring Peter O’Toole in the lead role.
With John’s expertise in this subject matter, this is sure to be a fascinating presentation and one not to be missed. So please join us on Thursday 19th February from 7pm at Pine Trees to meet John and see his presentation.
