Abstract

This expedition, aboard the Egyptian research vessel HEMS Mabahiss, was funded by a bequest from the Scottish oceanographer, Sir John Murray (1841-1914). A joint British and Egyptian venture, the expedition party left Alexandria on 3rd September, 1933 and travelled through the Suez Canal, the Red Sea, and the Indian and Arabian Oceans on their nine-month journey. The expedition was led by Robert Beresford Seymour Sewell (1880-1964), a British zoologist and medical doctor who had served in India since 1908.
