Abu Dhabi- Dubai war 1945-48, any photos ?


Hello,

does anyone know anything about this war ?

Were there any battles or just skirmishes ? As the Trucial Oman states were

undeveloped , pre oil / gas production with next to no infrastructure there

were no "modern" armies, just rifle armed tribal warriors.

Any photos of the Abu Dhabi or Dudai warriors or shaikes guards or retainers ?

John.

No modern armies back then in the Gulf. I'd imagine with were rifle-armed tribal warriors.
