Identifying the company of an NCO in the Prussian Army 1912

Hello to all!
I have the Rangliste der Koeniglich Preussischen Armee 1912 but it does not lists NCOs. Can anyone provide me with a way to know the company number of an identified Vizefeldwebel der Reserve Offizier-Stellvertreter in 1912-13, before the regiments were reorganized as they mobilized.

This information would be of great help for a book I am working on right now.

Thank you :milwink:

1) Can you see their sword-knot in the/a picture?
2) Do you have a copy of the regiment's history? Often NCO's are mentioned in the text.

Hi jluetjen
Thanks for your reply. I have the regiment's history but unfortunately can find no mention of this NCO.
And unfortunately, no photo of the sword-knot. I am hoping the number might be on uniform buttons and i am awaiting further information from a descendant.
