View of three members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party trekking in the Al Dhafra sands, north-west of Liwa oasis. In the left foreground a tall scraggly bush grows on a stretch of flat sand. Just beyond three of Wilfred Thesiger's Rashid Bedouin companions, two of whom are carrying rifles, walk into the distance followed by four of the party's camels. Warad, the party's saluki dog, walks along beside the men. A few large bushes grow in the sand. In the distance low rolling dunes continue into the horizon below a cloudless sky. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Al Ain to Liwa oasis, Al Dhafra and Baynunah sands in November and December 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.
