This small collection contains two files of papers and one photograph album, c 1968-c 1974, relating to Shebbeare's residence in Oman.
The photograph album contains unidentifed colour photographs, including of mountainous and desert scenes as well as of historic sites, ? 1970s. It is thought that these photographs were possibly used as slides in lectures given by Shebbeare.
The papers are contained in two green files printed with an 'Sultanate of Muscat and Oman office' file stamp, and also with 'Sultanate in Internal Affairs Dept' annotated.
The first file has 'Izki' labelled as a subject [ref. no. B425]. This contains English manuscript notes by Shebbeare including for autobiographical lectures about his residency in Oman, c 1974, and newspaper cuttings relating to the coup in Oman, 1970. Also included is correspondence in English and Arabic between Petroleum Development (Oman) Ltd, Muscat, the Department of Defence, Muscat, and Shebbeare as 'Secretary of the Ministry of Interior Affairs, Oman'. These letters relate to the claim of Seif bin Hamood al Qasimi of Falaj al Taibi, Izki [regarding the pipeline dispute at Izki], 1968-1970.
The second file has 'Khabora' labelled as a subject [ref. no. B463] and relates to the case of Suleiman bin Khalaf al Nakheili of al Rakah and the divorce of his daughter from Abdullah bin Khamis al Nakheili, AH 1388 [c 1968].
