Sorry, having problems posting a link from my tablet. Go on to google books and search British Military Library. There are two volumes available for free download.

This was the origin of the lengthy leather portmanteau saga. Blakey thought it indicated a different leather knapsack for sjts. Eventually we found corroboration for a particular form of light leather portmanteau for the early days of the rifle corps, but for all ranks, not just for sjts. From memory, it was done with by 1804ish.
