Did Feldjäger officers wear gorgets? I know that Feldgendarmerie officers did not but what about the Feldjägerkorps?

Not all feldjaeger troops wore gorgets. Though they were authorized their own gorget, it is not known how many feldjager gorgets actually made it to the field to begin with. Some continued to wear the regular military police gorget, while others did not wear them at all. Officers and enlisted would have both worn the red armband. Do what you want; I don't think anyone can say that you are wrong.

Thanks. I supposed that the red arm band would be most key so good heads up.

I am sure that the special armband and the red ID card from "High Command" would be quite anxiety producing.

Most definitely. They had a fearsome reputation.
