Three-quarter length portrait of one of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions standing in sands north of Al Ain during the party's journey from Al Ain to Ramlat Unayq. A bearded Arab man, one of Wilfred Thesiger's guides and a retainer to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, leans on a camel stick in the central foreground. He wears a cartridge belt over his thobe (long shirt), and has a ghutra (headscarf) tied around his head. Behind him is a vast expanse of sand, beyond which a steep, rock faced mountain rises in the far 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.
