Surinam 1795

In 1795, the Royal Army’s first large-scale combat deployment occurred when Manticoran forces sortied from the Caribbean Dependency to occupy the Dutch colony of Surinam on the northern coast of South America after the Netherlands fell to revolutionary France. This operation was conducted by the 10th Infantry Brigade, then the garrison force at Holy Cross. Although no Dutch resistance was encountered, there was scattered fighting against the local Indian tribes.

Participating Units


The 7th Rifle Regiment was awarded the appellation “Royal” for exemplary performance in combat against the Indian tribes of Dutch Surinam.
