The photograph, judging by the static postures of the figures, is a reconstruction after the event.  Situated between the Irrawaddy and Chindwin Rivers, the state of Wuntho was not absorbed into British administration after the Third Burmese War of 1885-86.  The Sawbwa (hereditary ruler of a Shan state) at this period was Maung Aung Myat who had taken over the leadership in 1881.  Consistently ill-disposed towards the British the Sawbwa had allowed his lands to become a place of refuge for dacoits (robbers) fleeing the British and in February 1891 open rebellion broke out when British troops entered northern Wuntho in pursuit of bandits.  A number of British police posts were attacked and British troops moved into the area.  On February 21 news came that the Sawbwa had stockaded himself at Kyaing-Kwintaung, situated about midway between Kawlin and Wuntho and on February 22 a force under the command of Captain T.A.H. Davies attacked the stronghold and killed 50 dacoits.  A similar action at Okkan on the same day crushed the rebellion.">
