36-Hole Reversible Block Cartridge Pouch - This lightweight and slender cartridge pouch is commonly, yet erroneously,
called the "Rawle Pouch". Although Rawle patented "improvements"
to this design in 1777, this pouch type was in use earlier than 1777.
Two of these pouches, one with markings from the 62nd Foot probably from
soldiers captured on Burgoyne's 1777 campaign, were found in an 18th century
Boston building. The late Ed Charol once owned both pouches, now they
reside separately in the Canadian War Museum and the Don Troiani Collection.
No further orders are being accepted until I catch up with existing orders. I will update this page when that happens. No, I don't know when that will be.
