Lawrence of Arabia (Thomas Edward Lawrence), British Army officer renowned especially for his liaison role during the Sinai and Palestine Campaign and the Arab Revolt against Ottoman Turkish rule of 1916–18, died aged 46, from injuries sustained 6 days earlier in a motorcycle crash. Whilst riding his Brough Superior SS100 motorcycle in Dorset, he swerved to avoid two boys on their bicycles obscured from views by a dip in the road and was thrown over the handlebars. The spot is marked by a small memorial at the side of the road.
