View of Two of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions making camp under a ghaf tree [Prosopis cineraria] north of Al Ain oasis. In the foreground two of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions sit beside a campfire. On the left Salim bin Ghabaisha, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, lifts a lid off a coffee pot. On the right a retainer of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan (one of Wilfred Thesiger's guides) sits beside a fire. Piles of firewood and camp supplies lie in the sand around them. Behind them a field of grass sits below a hill covered with small bushes.
