View of three men from Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party resting at 'Ayn al Hasy well. The man at the far left is Sadr, one of two Sa'ar Bedouin tribesmen who guided Wilfred Thesiger's party from Manwakh to 'Ayn al Hasy well. The young man crouching at the far right is Salim bin Kabina, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin and another of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions. Camels stand in the background behind the men.

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.
