description
Portrait of a number of Wilfred Thesiger's sailing companions relaxing on the deck of a sailboat (dhow) in the Abu Dhabi islands. Four men sit near the stern of the sailboat on carpets that have been spread out across the deck. Two men stand on either side of the boat, holding on to the overhead awning frame. Behind them a long narrow flag flies from a post at the back of the awning. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's week and a half long sailing trip around the Abu Dhabi Islands with Sheikh Hazaa bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Sheikh Khalid bin Sultan Al Nahyan and their retainers in March 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.
