Would they be buglers, drummers and buglers? Thanks.
Sorry about the multiple posts. I tried to delete one of them…

In Frederick's time oboe and horns, would think that might continue, Prussians seem to love military music.

Bill doesn't believe me but I am absolutely certain double postings are from double submitting, hit it once and wait.

By 1866 each line regiment had one fusilier battalion and two musketeer battalions, the only difference being the black leather accoutrements of the fusiliers, as opposed to the white of the musketeers. In addition,The Guard Corps had a regiment of Fusiliers, similarly distinguished, and with white metal fittings on their pickelhauben (this latter distinction was shared by the 1st Foot Guards).Regiments 33-40 were also designated and equipped as Fusiliers. As far as I have been able to discover, all battalions, both musketeer and fusilier, had both buglers and drummers, to the number of two of each in each if their four companies.
