Portrait of two Bedouin men from Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party tending dinner in camp during the party's journey to Al Mukalla. The man sitting on the right may be Mabkhaut bin Duailan, a Manahil raider who was killed in 1947, not long after Wilfred Thesiger met him.

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.
