Mayday: how the White Helmets and James Le Mesurier embarked on a deadly battle for the truth


An old friend, Alistair Harris, describes Le Mesurier as “Lawrence of Arabia-esque” – an image his friends say he loved to cultivate. He had a taste for the finer things in life and lived in a series of houses on islands. For several years living in the Gulf, he traveled to town regularly from his home on Futaisi Island, Abu Dhabi, standing at the wheel of a boat in a suit and brogues, his tie flapping in the wind. But he was never part of the security and intelligence services, says Harris, a former British diplomat who worked with Le Mesurier on several projects in the Middle East.
