Weird question, but: what was Lawrence's weight on average? Deadliest Warrior wikia lists it as 130 lbs, but I kinda doubt the legitimacy of the source and I didn't find anything else XD

Asked by crazypreacher

Eric Kennington once said that he looked to weight around 11 stone (154 lbs) in 1920. Although I do recall reading about him being severely underweight either after his walking tour of Syria or after the war - something like 120 lbs. While he was short, he was also very strong which is why I think he likely did weigh 130-150lbs depending on his age and whether it was pre or post-war.

Do you or any readers know anything about the whereabouts of Peter O'Toole's Lawrence robes from the movie. I wonder if they are ever exhibited?

No idea, but it’s a good question. Any readers have any information? 

Happy Birthday T.E. Lawrence, born August 16, 1888 in Tremadog, Wales. This is definitely one of my favorite photographs of him.

A new T.E. Lawrence book came in the mail today! It’s a short French comic, Portrait inconnu de John Hume Ross by Philippe Squarzoni. It’s about 38 pages and draws from situations and conversations in The Mint. In fact, the first few pages illustrate Lawrence’s experience in the recruiting office. It’s a really neat little book and one I’m glad to add to my collection!
