T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) (1888-1935) (PT60)

A rarely seen autograph - on signed letter

An autographed letter signed ('T. E. Shaw') to Flight Sergeant Clarke, 119 Clarence Road, East Cowes, 21 May 1933. A hint of foxing to the document, otherwise fine.

Reporting the extent of his travels in his role of looking after 'the five twin pinnacles', reporting progress in their mutual project, and sending greetings to fellow comrades: "...Other progress? Your second cradle is being made ready at Felixstowe. Your spare engine is bought: and sets of "Power" tools, for Section use, are going out after Whitsun to all stations [...] if you want anything, public or private, in which you think I can help, please ask!".

Lawrence was happiest in his RAF careers working on perfecting power boats to use in sea rescue of fallen airmen, initiating the development of the Air Sea Rescue launch.

Much of his time was spent with the manufacturers of the boats and their engines.

His expertise in the field was acknowledged by his superior officers, and they allowed him to dispense with the less congenial aspects of military life.

His preference for machines over people made this period of his short life the most pleasant he had enjoyed for years.

A rare signing.
