Sir: G R Green (Letters, 24 June) suggests a statue of Lawrence of Arabia in Arab dress astride a camel.

A splendid marble effigy, by Eric Kennington, of Lawrence in full Arab dress exists, and may be seen in the little Saxon Church of St Martin's- on-the-Walls in Wareham, Dorset. And although not mounted on a camel, his head is resting on a carved camel saddle. For those not able to get to Dorset, a plaster facsimile of the effigy will be found in the National Portrait Gallery.
