Dutch(Batavian Rep) headgear 1804-07 Suriname ?

Hello,

what type of headgear was worn by Dutch (Batavian republic) troops serving in Suriname and Curacao 1804-07 ?

Bicornes or round hats ?

"Napoleons overseas army " by Rene Chartrand has an illustration with bicornes being worn.

But in "Rivals of the Raj" by Peter Abbott , he mentions that Dutch troops in the East Indies up to 1810 had round hats with officers wearing bicornes with dress uniform.There is also an illustration of the Dutch in round hats.

Mark.
