Antigua and Barbuda

Antigua and Barbuda is a small island nation in the Caribbean, and a former colony of the British Empire. A major producer of sugar, the colony was naturally a prominent part of the slave trade until it was abolished in 1834. The nation became an independent state within the British Commonwealth in 1981. The nation's defence is the province of the Royal Antigua and Barbuda Defence Force, which consists of an infantry regiment (Antigua and Barbuda Regiment), Service & Support Unit, Coast Guard, and a cadet corps.

Some units of the RABDF, particularly the Antigua and Barbuda Regiment, wear the US m81 woodland camouflage BDU.
