View of member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party on a dune in near Umm az Zumul. In the central distance one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions (likely Salim bin Kabina, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin) stands on the crest of a dune. He balances a rifle in a tasselled case on one shoulder, and holds a camel stick. Behind him the dune, dotted with small tufts of vegetation, rises to a peak in the far 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.
