Dear Sir:

I am desired "by The Bahrein Petroleum Company Limited to
call your attention to an apparent disal'epancy in the geographical
position of the Hawar Island group as" shown on the map which
accompanied the attachment to your letter No. C/1228 dated December
23rd, 1947.
The abovementioned map shows the Hawar Island group to be
located approximately 4-,000 ft, further East than indicated by sur
vey work carried out by the Company. This contention is based on
information to the effect that in 1932 H.M.S. "Ormonde" made a
hydrographic survey to the North and North-East of Bahrein Island.
At this time the geographic position of various points on Bahrein
Island was established. A photostat copy of a record signed by
D, H, Fryer, believed to have been a Captain of H.M.S. "Ormonde"
of these positions is attached. This record shows the geographic
position of:-
(a) Triangulation Station on the summit of Jebel Dukham:
Latitude Longifoidfr,
North 26° 02 , 15 M East 50° 32 l 30 n
(b) Political Agency An office of the British Government and, earlier, of the East India Company. (Nail in roof)t
Latitude Longitude
North 26° UW East 50° 35*00"
These geographic positions have been used to find other
geographic positions on and near Bahrein Island.
A triangulation system was formed covering Bahrein Island,
and the co-ordinates of all the triangulation stations were found
with reference to Triangulation Station No, 1 on Jebel Dukham,
