"Ambushed under the Cliffs, Colonel Rookes, Von Tempsky and Colonel Nixan, have a narrow escape."

Colonel Rookes, Von Tempsky and Colonel Nixon on horseback carrying pistols have a narrow escape from an ambush of Maoris who are lined up above them on the cliffs in the background of the picture. They are armed with guns. One of the three men is standing next to his horse while the other two are mounted on their horses. Smoke from the guns can be seen.
