I'm currently painting IR Pallandt for the WSS, and have some of the lovely Ebor figures. However, there's a bit of the casting that I just can't work out. There appears to be a strap over the left shoulder (still black on the WIP below) that disappears under the neckerchief but then doesn't reappear. Can anyone help and tell me what it is and what colour I should be painting it?

Many thanks!

Grenadier's match case possibly?

Match case for the grenades. Usually bright metal.
