This is the best description of this item that we could find:

The British attack on Kapotai Pa, Waikare Inlet, Bay of Islands. Several armed redcoats by a clump of bushes in the foreground, other soldiers and "friendly" Maori firing from behind a line of bushes in the middle distance towards the fenced pa site set against hills. A European house outside the fencing on the right has other Maori around it. cf A-079-025, John Williams' pastel sketch of the same view, possibly the field sketch, while Bridge's watercolour is more likely to be worked up from Williams' view. Inscriptions: Recto - [title in Bridge's hand and] Cyp.Bridge fecit [in pencil] This attack took place in the Omapere area, a week after the attack on Puketutu Pa. Kapotai Pa was on one of the head creeks of the Waikare Inlet. Bridge organised a boat expedition to Kapotai Pa and burned the pa while the friendly Maori, under Tamati Waka Nene, fought the Kapotai in the bush.
