This is an NCO’s unissued portépée from Bataillon Nr 3, Kompagnie Nr 6 within an Infanterie, Fuß-Artillerie, or Eisenbahn Regiment, a Pionier-Bataillon, or a Luftschiffer-Abteilung. These portépées were worn on NCO’s bayonets as a sign of their rank. The white strap is doubled over and held in place by white thread. White tassels hang down from the portépée’s red-capped acorn, which has a red handle extending all the way to the strap. It certainly would complete a bayonet display for any of the previously-mentioned units.
