hummm, when took place a such curious affair?… I don't remember that France was a threat for Honduras…
maybe Belize was the French Honduras instead of the British

about a such well-uniformed and well-armed «one of his Battalions» for Honduras that is an other affair,
only one artillery half-company for the garrison in Omoa not before 1777 taken by…the British in 1779 and while during the XVIIIth century there were only poorly or unarmed militiamen without uniforms, as in the Costa Rican militia c.1737 still mainly equiped just with forks and pikes or lances and few lucky men with arquebuses or muskets into militia infantry companies with 2 or 3 firearms
