This is a pair of major’s shoulder boards from Saxony’s Königl Sächs. 4. Infanterie-Regiment Nr 103. The regiment was raised in 1709. It was garrisoned at Bautzen, where is was attached to the XII. ArmeeKorps. As a major, this man was either one of the three Bataillon Kommandeurs or he was on the regimental staff, depending on the regiment’s organization. Each shoulder board sports “Russian” style rope braid, indicative of major/oberstleutnant/oberst’s shoulder boards. The chevrons on the braid are green, which confirms their origin in Saxony. Each shoulder board carries a gilt regimental designation of “103.” The shoulder boards are quite large, measuring 5 3/4″ x 2.” The backing is red. The boards have slip-on, Saxon-style attachments, rather than having been sewn onto the tunic.
