A snapshot taken by an airman with No. 1 Squadron of the Australian Flying Corps at Akaba in late 1917 and shows the legendary hero in full Arab dress.<br />
<br />
An unseen letter in which war hero TE Lawrence wrote 'some day that little business in Arabia will be famous' has been unearthed almost 100 years later.<br />
<br />
The prophetic letter by the man who became known around the world as Lawrence of Arabia is accompanied by a rare photo of him in Arab<br />
headdress and robes.<br />
<br />
The letter is dated Christmas Day 1918 shortly after his return from Arabia at the end of the First World War and before he became a household name.<br />
<br />
It is being sold tomorrow at Sotheby's for an estimated £15,000.
