Story of pouch...

The pouch system of the NCO's and men of the 3/60 Rifles was the same as for the line infantry and light infantry ,but
I wonder if they would rather not wear their "expense" pouch in the back , rather than in front ?
And for the other battalions, there were Particular traditions for how to wear their expense pouch...?

I can think of no reason for the 3rd/60th to be different to all the rest.
By-the-way Riflemen don't Fix Bayonets

Thank you, John, it is true they had magnificent sword bayonets ,like the sergeants of line and light infantry ...
John , I am reminded of these days, someone had said or written that some battalions wore their expense pouch at the place where they carried their valises ...
I found, but I do recall me or I've seen illustrations showing this ...
To particularize of the other battalions, some may have to be done this :
"the expense pouch was often therefore carried in place of the valise" page 17 in British forces in Zululand 1879 by IK
