Today we commemorate the death of one of the most iconic figures of the first World War and one of the most famous Englishmen in the Arab World Thomas Edward Lawrence.

Lawrence fought for the liberation and unification of the Arabs living in the Arabs living in the so-called Middle East. He fought and marched alongside the local tribes which he described in his memoir The Seven Pillars of Wisdom.

He died in England after sustaining serious injuries from a motorcycle accident in the Dorset countryside.
