Seated group portrait of members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party with tribesmen of the Wahiba Bedouin in the Wadi Halfayn. Four men sit in the sand facing forward. On the far left Hamad, a tribesman of the Mahra Bedouin, kneels holding a rifle. At the centre left a Bedouin tribesman (possibly a member of Wilfred Thesiger's party) kneels with his hands in his lap. At the centre right Mahalhal bin 'Ati, a tribesman of the Al Khamis lineage of Awamir Bedouin, kneels in the sand holding a rifle and camel stick in his lap. On the far right a tribesman of the Wahiba Bedouin sits holding a camel stick. Each man wears a cartridge belt over his thobe (shirt) and a headscarf. In the background a man walks on a flat plain dotted with a few bushes.
