Bridge, Cyprian, 1807-1885 :View of the left angle of Heke's pah at Ohaiawai that was stormed on the 1st July, 1845, from a breastwork adjoining our right battery. .
A group of six red-coated soldiers (with part of a seventh on the far right) and one "friendly" Maori in the foreground, behind a low shelter, loading and shooting towards the extensive palisades of Hone Heke's pa at Ohaiawai. The palisades are shown with rifle holes continously along the base to enable firing from behind protection; the English soldiers and their companion, on the other hand, are having to raise their heads above their shelter to fire, with the exception of those on the far right, who are behind a Maori-style palisade. There is a flag flying to the far left of the pa.
