Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Hi all

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...?

Cheers

Hi all

Well, Sergeant ! We put or not , our bayonets ?

When the imperial infantry is controled, the soldiers opened fire with or without the bayonet fixed ...?

Pascal,

This how the expense pouch should be worn with 1871 Equipment.

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, they Fix Swords.

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
