Battle for Bergen 1799
23rd September 2017 - 24th September 2017
In the Year 1799 a combined British-Russian expedition landed near Den Helder in the Netherlands in an attempt to push Napoleon’s troops out of the Netherlands, which failed. The Gordon Highlanders earned their first battle honour “Egmond op Zee” during this campaign. An event is being held in the town of Bergen in remembrance of this campaign. The battle will take place around the ruined church in the centre of the town. Actual fighting took place at that location in 1799.
