Wray's ship lands at Coseir "where there is not a drop of water" and the men purchase it from local Arab traders. The traders say there has not been a drop of rain for 19 years. The Officers inspect the men and instruct them to throw away everything in preparation for the march through the desert. This was undertaken with the help of camels.
