A scrip is a leather satchel or large pouch, worn on a strap. Since it was frequently borne by pilgrims, it’s more fully blazoned a “pilgrim’s scrip” or “palmer’s scrip”; it might also be termed a “pilgrim’s pouch” or “purse”. It’s a period charge, found in the allusive arms of Palmer, late-15th C. [DBA2 395]. The scrip is frequently depicted with its carrying strap.
Related to the scrip is the “belt pouch”, sometimes called a “kidney pouch” because of its shape; it’s also called a “saddlebag” in modern heraldry. The belt pouch is a period charge, found in the canting arms (German Täsche) of Täschinger, mid-16th C. [NW 46]. For related charges, see bag.
