LLawrence's diaries for 1917-18




Youth |1914 | 1915 | 1916 | 1917 | 1918 | 1919 | 1920 | 1921 | 1922 | 1923 | 1924 | 1925 | 1926 | 1927 | 1928 | 1929 | 1930 | 1931 | 1932 | 1933 | 1934 | 1935


The information in these pages from comes from Appendix II of Seven Pillars of Wisdom, where Lawrence writes:

'The following table of our movements or position-at-night is from my skeleton diary. Accident, preoccupations, and prudence were responsible for gaps. My book follows the strict order of time: but leaves out many by-plays. The dates here do not altogether agree with its text. Memory sometimes assists me with moonlight, on a new-moon night: and I have preferred memory to the calendar. Arabic names are spelt anyhow, to prevent me appearing an adherent of one of the existing systems of transliteration.'

Lawrence took the information in the Appendix from pocket diaries he had carried during 1917 and 1918. These are now in the British Library, Add MS 45985 A-B.
