View of the MT park (1961 version) looking towards Nizwa from the top of the camp guard tower (below left).

and the searchlight inset

The cookhouse building with the coldstore and makeshift ‘club’ for recreation (boozing and bawdy songs!). Note the wall made from petrol and kerosene flimsies.

Some S.O.A.F. planes ‘buzz’ the Nizwa camp sometime during 1961.
