This contains information about the defence forces in the Danish West Indies. There were basically three parts: army with cavalry, infantry and artillery in the garrison in the towns, a naval force that most often consisted of a couple of warships stationed in the biggest towns, and a citizens' militia, that was also centered in in the three towns. The military force was abolished in 1906 and was replaced by the West Indian gendarmerie corps, which also served as a police force.
