Comments: A fresh and vivid memoir of an Australian horseman serving in the Palestine campaign.

Includes a chapter ‘Working with Lawrence’ on the legendary T.E. Lawrence of Arabia.

The author, Brisbane born Captain Hector Dinning, was an officer in the Australian Light Horse of the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) in the Great War.

He served with his unit in the Palestine campaign, journeying from Cairo in Egypt to Aleppo in Syria, and recounts his experiences in the Middle East. This book will especially interest anyone keen on T.E.. Lawrence ‘of Arabia’.

Dinning worked alongside the legendary Colonel and his portrait of him is especially valuable as it was written early (1920) before the legend of Lawrence had taken hold. Written in a direct, forceful and typically Australian style, this memoir will delight anyone interested in Lawrence, the Middle East and the Great War.
