It is mentioned in multiple places (eg. in "With Lawrence in Arabia" by L.J. Thomas, in this article, and even in the Wikipedia page about him) that Fakhri Pasha (Fahreddin Paşa), the commander of the Ottoman Army and governor of Medina from 1916 to 1919, was nicknamed as "Tiger of the Desert" by the British, or even more specifically T.E. Lawrence (aka Lawrence of Arabia).

Is there any truth to this nickname?
