View of Wilfred Thesiger's party resting in camp at Furai well in Sharqiyah Sands. In the left foreground Salim bin Kabina, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani Lineage of Rashid Bedouin, stands in camp beneath a tree. Piles of equipment and blankets lie in the sand, and on the right two more members of the party sit beside a shade canopy erected in a small stand of bushes. In the distance beyond the party's camels are couched in the sand, while further behind large numbers of goats and camels, attended by a Bedouin family, crowd around Furai well.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
