Unknown Victorian Pouch

Recommended Posts

Dear Gentlemen,

A collectors friend bought his victorian leather pouch. There are no hallmarks on the pouch. He asked if i knew it. i looked in some old spink catalogues but i'am not sure. I guess it is an Cavalry Officers pouch with Cypher VR for Queen Victoria. Is this correct?

Certainly Victorian, and would believe it to be either regular cavalry or yeomanry, but I can't make the cypher out. I'll admit I don't think there's a reference book on the types of pouch worn by cavalry units, which would help you out, although "Dress Regulations" may have descriptions of pouches worn by the various units.
