The 99th Regiment of Foot was an infantry regiment of the British Army, raised on 10 February 1794 by Lieutenant-Colonel Stuart Douglas and numbered as the 99th Foot in October of the same year.

The regiment was dispatched to the West Indies, serving in San Domingo and taking part in the capture of the Dutch colony of Demerara in 1796. They were disbanded in Demerara in 1797, with the men drafted into the 39th (Dorsetshire) Regiment of Foot.[1][2][3]
