officers' busby with white plume ; it is specifically characterized by the absence of
a boss, a long tradition in the Regiment, that will eventually be
officially sanctionned in the 1900 in the Dress Regulations for
Officers of the Army.

Prussian Eagle (the Regimental badge since 1799) is worn below the
royal cypher and crown.

feature more usually associated with the 11th Hussars.
