    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.

          Do you have either The Uniforms of the Prussian Army Under Frederick the Great or Unter dem Preussen Adler? If you can get hold of them they might help you.
