WBI's: Bedouin Division

As I wrote something that mentioned him earlier this week and I am going back home to Wales during the Bank Holiday weekend it seems only right and proper that I should take a little time out to induct Lawrence of Arabia - born in Tremadoc, Caernarfonshire on August 16, 1888 - into the Bedouin Division of Welsh Born Icons.

At his funeral, Winston Churchill said: "He was one of the greatest beings of our time. Whatever our need, we shall never see his like again."

Close readers will remember that he is member number two after Hugh Griffith's Sheik Ilderim.
