This previously unpublished manuscript sketch depicts the coastline of the Arabian Peninsular stretching south west down from Ras Al-Khaimah as far as Dubai.  It was drawn as much as a political reference and commemoration, as anything else. The sketch depicts the British campaign to eliminate what they saw as ‘piratical’ interference from Arabian vessels to their shipping and trade in the Arabian Gulf. It has been argued by Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, the present Ruler of Sharjah, that what the British saw as ‘piracy’ was in fact basic rivalry between the British and Qawasim over control of the important shipping route through the mouth of the Gulf.
