Why the Hejaz?

Theme from the film "Lawrence of Arabia" (IE only)

Interest in the Hejaz (Hedjaz or Hijaz) and therefore the Order of Al Nahda (or Nahada) and the connection with Lawrence of Arabia comes about from possessing the medal groups to the five men who were awarded the Order of Nahda from the "Arabian Detachment" or "C" Flight of 14 Squadron.

Research on participants

I have research on the following men and have some original documentation and photographs of their time in the Hejaz from November 1916 to the end of July 1917.
The ranks given are the final ranks with which they ended their careers.
