Interesting to note in that 3rd image showing where the (mostly) 20th Century General's collar tabs evolved from.  Never knew that.

There's a fantastic interview with him on YouTube.

You're right, It took I think till around 1900 that these embroiderys were used. I don't know the exact circumstances, maybe someone else knows more. Would be interesting if this was Wilhelms personal idea or from one of his staffs. Could be that he had the idea at one of those fancy costume-balls. 

Later on others of those Frederick the Great - embroiderys were used too for specific regiments(think of the famous picture of General von Kluck)
