Anyone have an opinion which unit these belong to? 

(no maker marks I can see)

Was told British but could be German.

Grateful for any  comments

160th Infantry Regiment? Definitely German, rank of Colonel (Oberst).

Other opinion was they're for a Hauptmann (something like a Captain)

No,

they are definitely for an Oberst, a Hauptmann has not these fringes.

Kind regards

Hello!

If Inf.Rgt.160, the base colour under the numbers might be blue. It´s difficulty to see...

Then it´s correct!

I don´t know, who weared the epaulettes. There were 12 commanders between 1897 and 1919

Thanks, bought these with a pair of 18c Royal Navy epaulettes 20+ years ago - forgot about them until I was just moving.
