    I think the NCO with the interesting cockade is from a Hamburg regiment.

    After their respective military establishments were amalgamated into the Prussian army (nb-not through annexation), the contingents from Hamburg, Bremen, and
    Lübeck used state cockades with the Hanseatic cross, a red Maltese cross, on a white roundel. In 1897, Bremen changed its cockade to a simple red-white-red roundel, and Hamburg changed from the Hanseatic cross to an Iron cross. Lübeck kept its original. My source is "The Pickelhaube", by JA Bowman (p. 76). I don't have more specific info about which regiment this concerns, though.

    Prost!
