Following extensive and detailed research into the activities of the ships of the Red Sea Patrol, our guest speaker, John Johnson Allen, a maritime historian and former Merchant Navy officer will explain how it has become evident that, without the work of those ships, the Arab revolt would have failed and T E Lawrence would have remained an obscure officer in the military bureaucracy of Cairo.
