March 1933

On 6 March, bored with normal service duties at Plymouth, Lawrence requests a discharge. The request is approved.

April 1933

On 15 April, the Daily Mail reports Lawrence's discharge, but on 19 April he is offered a posting to the RAF Marine Aircraft Experimental Establishment at Felixstowe. He accepts, and arrives on 28 April. At around this time, the military historian Liddell Hart begins work on a new biography of Lawrence.

May 1933

After two weeks at Felixstowe, Lawrence begins to travel frequently on RAF business - to Hythe, East Cowes, Manchester, and London. His job is so time-consuming that he is forced to give up all literary work.

King Feisal of Iraq dies in Switzerland.

November 1933

The British Legion Journal publishes three chapters from The Mint, pirated by an unscrupulous intermediary from a typescript copy. The incident annoys Lawrence's superiors.
