Lord Bonkers on the death of Lawrence of Arabia

Lord Bonkers writes exclusively for Liberal England:
T.E. Lawrence - "Lawrence of Arabia" - died on this day in 1935.  I had long been an admirer of his novels and was shocked to hear the news. 
It later transpired that he died in a motorcycle accident after, uncharacteristically, swerving to avoid two schoolboys.
Lord Bonkers went on to assure me that there is no truth in Alan Bennett's suggestion in Forty Years On that Lawrence "was known at school as 'Tee Hee Lawrence' because of his high-pitched girlish giggle".
