Description: A scene of several troop-ships under fire from the shore in a rough sea. To the left of the composition, the 'River Clyde' is run aground and listing to one side. Over to the right another ship is seen vanishing beneath the surface, and there are two small boats filled with troops in the foreground. A high sand-coloured cliff runs almost the length of the composition in the background, and a clear sky above. From the surrounding gunfire there are two large sprays rising from the sea, and two clouds of grey smoke.
