It was among the ten regiments sent to the West Indies in 1779, helping to seize St. Lucia and St. Eustatius (Statia) from the French. It then helped form the garrison of the latter island for some time. Archeological excavations at Statia occupation sites subsequently uncovered brass, eight-pointed-star cap plates bearing the engraved number “15” in the center. The 15th returned home from the West Indies in 1782 aboard the captured French vessel Ville de Paris, a prize ship taken by Admiral Sir George Rodney.
It quietly returned home in 1782 without firing another shot. The 22nd had yellowish buff facings and all the corresponding buff appointments of a regiment so endowed. Lace loops were bastion in pairs. Curiously, the regiment earned the fleeting nickname of “The Red Knights” circa 1795 due to their wearing red small clothes.

Another more lasting nickname was “The Acorn Boys” because it was generally remembered that at the battle of Dettingen, 1743, King George II had taken refuge beneath a large oak tree, his person guarded exclusively by The Cheshires.
