    The Flugeladjutant was an important role in the courts of Imperial Germany.

These officers did much of the communication from the court to higher levels of army command. These two levels of adjutants were typical from the vast court of Prussia to the smaller states such as a Principality. This was certainly he case with our offering of a Flugeladjutant from Reuss. As this was such a small state pickelhauben are much rarer and hard to find….
