These gentleman were Clumsy KPs.
I went to Clumsy after the Italy project. Both KPs spoke Italian, as did most of the older Arabs. I could speak some Italian which made me automatically their go to guy.
I was invited to their tent for tea, introduced to others as their very good American friend etc.
On one occasion we meet the father of KP-1, shown here at a watering point on a main N-S road.
He got me into places I normally could not as in the tent with the three children. He knew the family.
