NCO's Pouch

This is an adaptation of an illustration in Langridge's book of Dress Distinctions of the Queen's Bays published around the time of their amalgamation in 1959. The caption says: 'The black leather pouch worn in no.1 dress, no.3 dress and battledress by the Orderly Warrant Officer and Orderly NCOs. It was also worn by ranks of sergeant to RQMS in no.1 and no.3 dress when available. The badge was of gilding metal and was in fact identical to the rank badge of the SSM. The crown was the approved badge for wear on the troopers' pouch in full dress days, the Bays being one of the few cavalry regiments for which pouch badges were approved for troopers.'
