who I have had the pleasure to get to know.
I apologize to the many that I have not been able to include,

without whom I would not have been given the opportunity
to produce and develop my work over the last ten years.

WHEELS ACROSS THE DESERT
Egypt was the centre of the war effort in the near East.
Units would strike westwards into the Sahara desert to deal with dissident tribes who were goaded into action by the Turks,
or were sent northwards into Gaza to confront the Turkish army itself.
The Sennussi were a warlike Arab religious sect encouraged
by the Turks to tie down as many British troops as possible.
Model T Ford cars,
escorted by Rolls-Royce armoured cars were used to patrol the desert,
and to launch daring raids against the Sennussi.
The most important British armoured car of the first World War
was undoubtedly the Rolls-Royce.
In terms of the numbers built,
effective design and all round quality it was unequalled,
and is now taken to typify the vintage armoured car.
The Hedjaz Armoured Car Section,
was an unit of three Rolls Royce armoured cars,
which operated alongside the irregular forces inspired and guided by T.E Lawrence.
This unit also acted independently and mounted long range raids,
such as the succesful raid against the Amman railway bridge in September 1918.
The armoured cars earned Lawrence's respect for their reliability and effectiveness,
and in his "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" he mentions that "a Rolls in the desert was above rubies".
