This is a very fine pair of enlisted man/NCO’s epaulettes from Königs-Ulanen-Regiment (1. Hannoversches) Nr 13. The regiment was raised in 1803. It was garrisoned in Hannover and attached to the X. ArmeeKorps. The regiment was originally from the Kingdom of Hannover. It fought under the Duke of Wellington’s command across the Spanish/Portuguese Peninsula, and in the final battle against Napoleon at Waterloo in 1815. The regiment was considered to be the very finest among the Duke’s mounted troops. They fought bravely against Napoleon’s best. Originally a Hanoverian regiment, it was absorbed into the Prussian Army after Hannover was defeated in the 1866 Austro-Prussian War. Its battle honors were restored by Kaiser Wilhelm II in 1897. Known as the “King’s Ulanen Regiment,” its men were given the additional honor of wearing a Garde-Star on their tschapkas (as did all Garde-Regiments). The epaulettes feature a silver moon against a white felt background. Attached to that is Kaiser Wilhelm II’s royal cypher. Twin metal attachments appear on the epaulette’s tongue, which confirms that they are for an enlisted man/NCO. The white material is repeated as the epaulette’s backing. They are in very fine condition and come from a VERY elite Kavallerie Regiment.
