This is a very nice pair of shoulder boards for a One Year Volunteer from Mecklenburg-Schwein and Grenadier-Regiment Nr 89 also known as Großherzogl. Mecklenburgisches Grenadier-Regiment Nr 89, Bataillon Nr 1 and Nr 3. Bataillon Nr 2 was from Mecklenburg-Strelitz. Bataillon Nr 1 and Nr 3 were garrisoned at Mecklenburg, while Bataillon Nr 2 was located at Neu Strelitz. The regiment was founded in 1782 and attached to the IX. Armeekorps.

The shoulder strap appears on page 87 of Under Arms for the Kaiser: Shoulder Insignia of the German Army’s Regiments 1871-1918, by Michael A. Kelso.

One Year Volunteer shoulder boards are always far scarcer than those for an Enlisted man/NCO.

These have the braid around the edges for Mecklenburg-Schwerin which is red, blue, and yellow.

The background is white and embroidered royal cypher is in red. At the buttonhole, you can see the impression where the button held the shoulder board on the tunic.

The reverse of the shoulder boards is a dark blue.
