Well, I might be quoting from an inccurate page so what do I know lol.

Taken from here


Lawrence's Broughs
RE: Bygone Days article about a Raleigh link with T E Lawrence.
Lawrence actually met his untimely death while riding the Brough Superior a 1932 1000ce 58100 (GW 2275) he named George VII.
From September 1922, Lawrence owned eight Brough motorcycles; he had names for each of them:
1922 -'Boa', short for Boanerges 'Sons of Thunder', the title Jesus gave to disciples James and John.
1923 - George I that cost £150, more than the price of a house at the time.
1924 - George II.
1925 - George III.
1926 - George IV.
1927 - George V (RK 4907).
1929 - George VI (UL 656).
1932 - George VII (GW 2275). This machine has been in the sole possession of Mr John Weebly of Ringwood for the past 23 years.

Hmmm...


BOA George: 7 Brough Superiors owned and ridden by T.E. Lawrence aka Lawrence of Arabia. T. E. Lawrence numbered his Brough Superior motorcycles after their maker: George I, George II, George III, George IV, George V, George VI, and George VII. They all had the name BOA, short for Boanerges - god of thunder. Lawrence was killed in an accident when riding George VII while awaiting delivery of George VIII.

His motorcycles were numbered George I to George VII, perhaps factory numbers or just as an honor to his friend, George Brough, who built the motorcycles. His last motorcycle, George VIII, was on order when Lawrence died on George VII. Lawrence gave the same personal name to each of his motorcycles: Boa, which was short for Boanerges which means Sons of Thunder.

en.wikipedia.org...


TE Lawrence, immortalised as Lawrence of Arabia, had an unceasing passion for motorcycles and, like so many other men of his generation, began riding during the First World War. Following the publication of 'Seven Pillars of Wisdom' Lawrence bought his first Brough Superior, a 1922 Mark 1, thus beginning a long association with the marque and its owner, George Brough. Lawrence named his Broughs 'Boanerges', meaning 'sons of thunder', and called them George I, George II, and so on. George VIII was ready for collection at the time of Lawrence's death.

I never recall reading where it said these questions were in chronological order.

they generally run a series of questions that are in a similar vein. so theymight ask 3-5 questions about the start of a war and the last question will sometimes push you into a new area and other times it won't.

at the point we are at, after garnering the next 12 referrals, the question will probably be the start of another time line.

that's my guess but I am a frickin genius. ask around.

So do we know who wins a sumo??


Am I getting it correct that '' boanerges '' was the collective name for his extremely loud petrol guzzlers?

I found numerous spelling variations also

I sent ''more referrals'' just for the heck of it but since us Brits were inelligible for the Bonus prizes last time so I didn,t really bother.

Heck I was just happy to get a question on my specialist subject.. Fast noisy things that I keep falling off

We may be able to ship the "DisInfo Company prizes" to Western Europe, I am finding out now. If so, we will change the "disclaimer section" of the game to reflect that.

This was brought up and consequently forgotten by us when we started this game, sorry about that
, but we will get it straight today and I'll make an announcement accordingly.
