Side view of three members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party companions climb up the slope of a sand dune in Liwa oasis. In the foreground three of Wilfred Thesiger's Rashid Bedouin companions follow tracks up the side of a dune. On the left one man walks up the slope, leaning on his camel stick. Behind him two men, one of whom carries a rifle, lead a camel by its head rope up the slope. Behind the men sky is streaked with a thin haze. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Al Ain to Liwa oasis, Al Dhafra and Baynunah sands in November and December 1948.

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.
