Image description

This is known as a ‘housewife’, a compact sewing kit that a soldier carried on campaign to mend his uniform. This housewife was made of silk pockets containing threads, five buttons and a small pincushion in a card tied with a pink ribbon. It was carried on campaign by Captain Newton Chambers, who served with the 1st Regiment of Foot Guards. At the Battle of Waterloo he was aide-de-camp to General Sir Thomas Picton and was killed during the battle, as was Picton himself.
