Hello again. Reading through some image-devoid books I’m having trouble picturing the exact differences in litzen worn by different ranks. Has anybody here got pictures of an enlisted man, NCO, and officer from the same (braid-wearing) unit? I’d like to be able to get my head around it.

Hello Viscountless , I guess that you want to know if the oficers braid and the NCOs and enlisted men were the same. well they were not . the Oficers braid was in many cases highly decorative ones , inclusive the more simples designs . the NCOs and enlisted men ones were basically the same type for all Regiments entitled to wear braid . in two variants ,the so clled Grenadier litze that showed on the plate posted by arb and the so called Garde litze ,that was the same but double . existed a third variant called old style , this was a simple bar pointed at the rear end . It was not much used
