View of Wilfred Thesiger's party watering camels at a well in the Wadi al 'Ayn. In the foreground one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions pours a bag of water into a trough, at which three camels are drinking. In the right background Hamad [also known as Hamad al Mahri], a tribesman of the Mahra Bedouin, stands behind the camels, looking into the right distance.

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.
