Hello everyone,
 
      just recently seen a brief mention of a war between Abu Dhabi and Dubai  1945-48.
 
   Does anyone have any information or are there any photos of the "armies".
 
   I write "armies" as  Trucial Oman was  (at this time) not modern or developed , more likely
 
 traditional tribal  rifle armed warriors.

It may have been more of a skirmish or feud than a war: tribesmen with camels sniping at each other among the sand dunes

This topic might get more answers in the Middle East section. Perhaps one of our Arab friends knows more about this war?
