Sabretache of General Burroughs

This is the sabretache of General Burroughs and its contents while he was in the Orkney Vol Artillery . He has annotated the inside of the Sabretache with his long connection with the 93 Highlanders. Its unusual to find the contents of a sabretache still in place.

Picture is upside-down. I'll post a flipped version. (A sabretache is apparently a flat bag slung from a cavalry officer's sword-belt. No sign of a bag here!)
