Thank you Francis.
Just the regular M95 posts and enlisted type prussian/Reich cockades; nothing special...

I was always under the impression that a Fahnenjunker in a dragoon regiment was called a Coranet. This proves otherwise. Perhaps it changed when the language changed? French influence to German influence?

We can pretty much date this helmet exactly. Fahnenjunker-Unteroffizier Weichert of Dragoner-Regiment Nr. 9 was promoted to Fähnrich on 22 March 1914 and commissioned as a Leutnant (without Patent) on 10 August 1914. He subsequently received seniority from 20 November 1912 (20.11.12 K). He survived the war and retired as an Oberleutnant a.D.

Joe,

I will need to do a bit of checking but I think you will find that the rank of Cornet disappeared from the Prussian Army following the disasters of 1806 and the subsequent reorganisation of the army. The rank of Cornet was the equivalent Cürassier and Husaren rank of that of Fähnrich, which at the time was the lowest commissioned rank.

Regards
Glenn

Joe,

as an addition. The Order of 6 August 1808 concerning officer recruitment introduced the rank of Portrpee-Fähnrich as a senior officer aspirant and the previous (commissioned ranks of Fähnrich and Cornett were discontinued. Here is a page from the 1806 Prussian Army Rangliste showing the junior commissioned officers of Regiment Usedom Husaren Nr. 10. The Dragoons used the rank of Fähnrich.

Regards
Glenn
