Officer's Pouch Belt Badges


The close-up image (Figure 277) 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.

The Officer’s and senior NCOs pouch belt, pouch and fittings are detailed in Figure 278. The second pattern Regimental pouch belt badge was finished in gilt and was attached using three screw posts. The pouch belt badge was the same size as the headdress badge and the rear of an example is shown in Figure 279 showing the screw posts.
