69th Foot (South Lincolnshire Regiment / later 2nd Bn The Welsh Regiment ) Georgian Musicians Leather Pouch

Possibly a unique find in a very stiff glossy leather in good condition and with the number 69 below a Georgian style crown burnt into the leather ( I am sure there is probably a technical term for this!). Brass button retains the flap. Large retaining loop for wear on a waist belt in matching leather to the reverse. No stitching faults. Possible name to reverse but no longer able to work this out. A wonderful early item, museum quality. Circa 8 inches tall and 6.5 inches wide and 1 inch deep. Worn by bandsman / musician.

The 69th Foot were amalgamated with the 41st Foot (Welsh Regiment) in 1881, to form the Welsh / Welch Regiment's second battalion.

On account of it being leather there may be some countries I am unable to post this item to. Please bear this in mind if you live in a country with such restrictions before ordering it. I am unable to post this to the USA.

Possible ships:

HMS Achilles (1905) was a Warrior-class armoured cruiser launched in 1905 and sold in 1921.
HMS Achilles (70) was a Leander-class light cruiser launched in 1932. She would serve with the Royal Navy's New Zealand Division from 31 March 1937 up to the creation of the Royal New Zealand Navy, into which she was transferred in September 1941 and recommissioned HMNZS Achilles. Her crew was approximately 60 per cent from New Zealand. She was transferred back to the Royal Navy from the Royal New Zealand Navy in 1946. She was then transferred to the Royal Indian Navy in 1948 as HMIS Delhi, eventually becoming INS Delhi and was scrapped in 1978.
HMS Achilles (F12) was a Leander-class frigate launched in 1968. She was sold to Chile in 1990 and renamed Ministro Zenteno.

On the morning of 13 December 1939, the middle ship of the three possible listed above to which this brooch may relate was one of a force light cruisers consisting of Achilles, Ajax and Exeter who engaged the pocket battleship, Admiral Graf Spee. A fierce battle ensue in which Achilles suffered some damage. In the exchange of fire, four crew were killed, her captain, W. E. Parry, was wounded.
