I tweeted earlier of the anniverary of T. E. Lawrence and his Arab force’s capture of Aqaba on 6 July 1917. Here is the story of Lawrence’s last motorcycle ride.

Speaking of Lawrene’s riding habits,

His trips could range from 500 to 700 miles per day visiting friends from Winston Churchill to Nancy Astor and managing to race with a Sopwith Camel biplane en route. Lawrence of Arabia was never destined to die in an old people’s home.
