This is a wrongly labeled postcard. Check both the shape of the shield and the hairstyle. It is probably a Sudanese Nubian-Bisharin or an Eritrean. So is also the one labeled ‘Somali family’.
The shield seems too large to be Somali… Somali shields were very small, much smaller than any other shields in the Horn area. Also, note that Somalis never rode camels…they would only walk next to them.
