Description

Portrait of Salim bin Kabina, one of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions, standing in the midst of a camp during the party's journey from the Wadi al 'Ayn to the Ramlat al Ghirbaniyat (Ghirbaniyat Sands). Salim bin Kabina, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin is wearing a cartridge belt over his thobe (shirt), and a dark coloured headscarf. In the background two of the party's camels are walking across the far side of the dune.
