I believe you mean the Marechaussee
Sabel? I would like to know more. Are there any online sources?
The information I quoted on the KNIL comes from
"As such, KNIL was involved in many campaigns against indigenous groups in the Netherlands East Indies including the Padri War (1821-1845), the Java War (1825-1830), crushing the Puputan (the final resistance of Bali inhabitants to colonial rule) of 1849, and the prolonged Aceh War (1873-1904)."
But there may be more pertinent information on the Marechaussee Sabel, if you would be so kind as to supply?
