A DATE TO REMEMBER....WHY?

ON THIS DAY

On May 19, 1935, T.E. Lawrence, also known as "Lawrence of Arabia," died in England from injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash.

Okay, My Fellow American....with a resounding "WHO", you might be waiting for an answer.
There was a movie a few years back with that title...I actually feel more associated with the
name and person before the movie...I'd written posts on here before about having served with the Naval Communications Facility in Morocco during the mid-50's. The Commanding
Officer, F.R.L. TUTHILL would conduct frequent personnel inspections and always give
lengthy dissertations about having been Lawrence of Arabia' radio operator in those Mid-East
forays... Actually the Old Skipper spoke lovingly and respectfully of the brigand...the desert
sun would cause inspection attired personnel to faint and the rumor was that more than a few troops would pretend and fall down to have several buddies nearby haul themselves to the shade and a drink of water! Now you know...if you are a history buff, check it out!
