The cap pouch is there but further around the belt.
I don't know why I didn't look earlier but..... page 46 Troiani's Regiments & Uniforms of the Civil War... 41st New York, two cartridge pouches.
I wonder if this of wearing the pouches was adopted because the regiment was recruited from Germans and this looks typically German?
If it's Troiani it's gospel in my book. I'm kicking myself as well for not looking. Mere proof I am anything but an expert... over enthusiatic amatuer enthusiast w/ delusions might be more apt. Thanks for the compliment Susan after this weeks flu romping through the house and the conga line of my family into the hospital I can use every bit of cheering up.
