Peculiarities of Officers
The officers were officially to wear a hat with either silver or gold tape. This depended on the regiment to which the officer belonged.
The junior and senior officers were then distinguished by the canes they were to carry. Junior officers were issued "Spanish reeds", whereas the senior officers carried a much heavier stick. This stick was to taper from thumb to index-finger width. The cane in both cases was meant to be used for discipline, with the thickness regulated to prevent "unnecessary mutilation".
