Default Help --> Epaulettes Garde Gren Regiment 4

Hello,


can somebody help me to identify the Oberstleutnant Epaulettes.


According to my statement, would the Half Moon be bronze and not silver?


cheers Andreas

Should be, but perhaps because these are for a retired officer (3 stripes in tresse) they have silver half moons?

I believe darekm is correct. Silver moons worn by retired officers. I show another example in my book to IR92. Mike
