Across the Sahara in a Series II Land Rover

In the late 60s my mother was working for the Foreign Office in Rabat, Morocco.

She had to do a long trip to a remote city, along with some colleagues.  They drove this Land Rover Series II, at one point running out of spare tires and having to be ‘helped’ by a truck that passed by, fortuitously.  It was a long trip.

My father found this photo whilst sorting through some of her old things.  Is that her at the wheel, or was she taking the photo?

What an adventure.
