UNBBST IN fICXNITX OP DXBBAH,
Whilst at SauLat Kalba, Said bin Hamad the
Sheikh made a complaint that Sheikh Salah of Dibbah, of
Shahu tribe had captured a baggara and occupied villages
belonging to him and had been preventing pearl diving off
Has al Jabal,
On reaching Dibbah, the Shahu Sheikh visited me
and in the presence of the Residency A diplomatic office of the British Government established in the provinces and regions considered part of, or under the influence of, British India. Agent and the
Quwasim Sheikh Rashid of Dibbah I went into the matter.
Xt appears that the Naqbin, a tribe nominally
under suzerainty of Kalba had been quarreling with Salah* s
people. They had burnt 3 of Salah*s dhows and damaged
wells etc, so in retaliation Salah had appropriated a
dhow belonging to the Naqbin.
An armistice of 4 months imposed by the Sheikh
of Umm-al-Qawain who had come over for the purpose of
settling the dispute, was fctill An force, so taking into
consideration all the circumstances I refrained from
interfering more especially as the Shahu tribe are at any
rate nominally a dependency of Muscat.
As regards the pearl diving Salah admitted the
charge, but in his turn complained that the people in the
pearl dhows were constantly stealing his goats, cutting
down his trees for fuel and committing other minor
depredations.
I consider therefore that he was but justified
in protecting his own property but at the same time I ^
took the opportunity of warning him that he should on no
account interfere or attempt to prevent pearl diving in
waters of the Ras al Jabal.
This he promised to do and in any further cases
of this sort Sheikh Rashid consented to adjudicate.
Both Sheikh Salah and Rashid gave me the
impression of being well disposed towards and anxious to
assist the Government in every way.
Senior Naval Officer,
Persian Gulf Historically used by the British to refer to the sea area between the Arabian Peninsula and Iran. Often referred to as The Gulf or the Arabian Gulf. .
