The French Revolutionary Wars broke out in 1792 and in 1794, members of the 29th took part in the British naval victory known as the Glorious First of June, serving as marines on HMS Brunswick and Ramillies. The regiment was awarded a naval crown for its participation in the battle, during which the Brunswick sank the French ship Le Vengeur du Peuple and disabled the Achille. It later fought in a more conventional role at Alkmaar in October 1799, during the Anglo-Russian invasion of Holland. n 1808, the 29th joined Wellington's army engaged in the 1807-1814 Peninsular War in Spain and Portugal
