Originally shoulder belt pouches were worn at the back and contained ammunition for carbines, the firearm of the cavalry, and later, according to the British light cavalry arm dress regulations, ‘writing materials’. However by the end of the 19th century shoulder belts and pouches were solely important items of regimental identity, and, given their decorative appearance, were often converted by former cavalry officers into items for domestic use.
