    If you go to the Anne Brown military collection website you can search for Prussian uniforms of 1804-1806 and there are some excellent prints to answer your question.

    The uniforms are here, beginning with a watercolor of General Lestocq:

    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

        What i meant was the diferrence between the captain, lieutenant and 2nd lieutenant of the officers, and the diferrence between sergeant-major, sergeant , corporal and junior corporal insignia of the NCOs.
