Enlisted Cavalry Faustriemen

The cavalry faustriemen had a red leather strap and slide, a white tassel and a crown whose color signified the squadron. These are shown in numerical order from 1st squadron (white) to 5th squadron (green). Sadly the 3rd squadron is missing its slide. The 1st and 5th are private purchase with the fancier crown.

Excellent, Bob. Thanks for sharing. I have an NCOs private purchase and NCO ersatz which I will dig out and post a photo of when I get a chance.
All the best

Nice Michael. Here are a couple of my NCO cavalry faustriemen. An issued Prussian and a private purchase Wurttemburg. Prussian ones are pretty easy to get but the other states are few and far between

Thanks Bob. Those are very nice. I haven’t seen many of the other states either and am trying to resist the temptation of trying to complete a full set!
