On the 24th May 1796 the 27th Regt stormed and captured Morne Fortune. As a mark of the Regiment’s gallant conduct Sir Ralph Abercrombie ordered the French garrison to lay down their arms to the 27th Regt and directed that the King’s Colour of the 27th Regt be hoisted at the fort for 1 hour prior to hoisting the Union flag.
