Lawrence was in the British Tank Corps, after the war he was acknowledged by his father, and joined the tank corps under the name T.E. Chapman, and was sent to Afghanistan to serve.

The government of Afghanistan objected, anticipating that he would be used to organize a rebellion (not an unlikely thing ever in Afghanistan). T.E. Chapman was shipped back to England, and separated from the service.

He changed his name again, to T.E. Shaw, after his close friend George Bernard Shaw. If you read the book "I Claudius" by Robert Graves, you will find that he previewed the book, and his salient points are mentioned by name.

TE Shaw served in the Royal Air Force for many years, helping develop their boat service, for rescuing downed pilots.
