Next to the army camp at Ibri the oil company, Petroleum Development (PDO) maintained a house with two men who were fluent Arabic speakers, I think they came from New Zealand, who worked to maintain good relations with the local population. We, the army and the PDO organised a days entertainment for the local population and the two young boys sitting in the VIP tent were the sons of the Wali of Ibri who came to the event. As far as I remember the Wali was the sole owner of a Land over.
The town was photographed on the flight from Bahrain to Muscat. I do not remember where but it could be Doha or Sharja.
The small boy was photographed in Izki Camp. I fear that I cannot remember his name. but he was always welcome for his big smile and laughter. He lived in one of the local villages.
