Officer's Pouch and Belt Badges


The close-up image (Figure 315) of Captain Hamar Greenwood of ‘B’ Squadron (British American) shows him wearing a pouch belt with a second pattern Regimental pouch belt badge (in the style of KK 1371) between the lion’s head holder with three chains and a whistle.
 
Figure 315: Close-up image of the pouch belt badge worn by Captain Hamar Greenwood (later Viscount Greenwood) of ‘B’ Squadron (British American) circa 1907.  His ‘B’ Squadron (British American) headdress (KK 1374) and matching collar badges can clearly be seen (Worthpoint Image).

The Officer’s and senior NCOs pouch belt, pouch and fittings are detailed in Figure 316.  The second pattern Regimental pouch belt badge was finished in gilt and was attached using three screw posts.   An exanmple is shown in Figure 316a.   The Officer’s and senior NCO’s pouch itself bore a smaller size second pattern Regimental pouch badge (in the style of KK 1371) in gilt again attached using three screw posts.  Most pouch badges are attached through the leather using screw posts as is the later King Edward's Horse pouch badge shown in Figure 368.
