Here is what I have for my Grenadier Regiment 2 group .
No officer helmet as they had no special plate .
G R 2 was raised 1679 II A K and Garrison was Settin
The special collar and cuffs for the officers pre -war
Prussian blue Waffenrock were awarded 4.5. 1897
The wide winged "new " Grenadier eagle front plate
was given 4.5. 1897 also.
The Cypher for King Friedrich Wilhelm IV
was first given 3.12. 1840
the IV was added 3.12. 1861
a la suite to the regiment was Gen.der Infantry von Linsingen
Prince Eitel Friedrich served as a Major
The Regiment Kommander was Oberst. Emmo von Dewitz from 1911 -1914
The first 3 photos will be of the officers waffenrock

Next officers shoulder straps
A single strap for a full Col. the regiment Kommander
G R 2 enlisted helmet dated 1915
I doubt the chin strap is correct , that's just the way it came to me
I can't find e m hook on scale straps for Infantry
another view of the 1915 e m helmet
sorry my photo bucket is not showing me the photos in the order I loaded them
so I am skipping around
Another G R 2 e m helmet ; the crown has been cut from the eagles head
this helmet is Kammer issued in 1909 G.R. 2
I think 2 B 8 C ? I did not think the 8th Co would be in the 2nd Batl ?

Here is the inside of the 1915 helmet and Kammer 2.G.R.

And last a pair of officers epaulettes for G R 2

The next 2 photos are the inside of the 1909 issue helmet
