Dutch units sent to Suriname,W Indies 1802 -07 ?

Hello,

does anyone know what units/ battalions the Dutch sent to their West Indian islands and Suriname colonies from 1802 ?

Line battalions in their blue jackets with various facings and bicornes,

Light battalions in the dark blue uniform, red facings and shakos,

or the jaegers battalions in green.

In "Napoleons overseas army" by Rene Chartrand, it mentions 4 jaeger (light battalions) , but the uniform illustrated show the line uniform of blue jacket, white breeches and bicorne. A bit confusing.

Pat.
