In December of 1997, the brigade was withdrawn to Holland to held with internal security duties in the Leeuwarden area. When the French invaded in 1998, the brigade moved into southern Holland in support of the Territorial Command troops. It was overrun by the Belgian 16th Mechanized Division in the vicinity of Eindhoven. The survivors withdrew back to their cantonment area in Leeuwarden, where they have been ever since.
