The Prussian 5th Regiment of Hussars (von Prittwitz) had long worn the death's head Totenkopf badge by the time their country faced Napoleon at Jena in 1806.  The crushing defeat of that year and the subsequent reorganisation of the army saw the regiment split into two - the 1st and 2nd Life (Leib) Hussars - in 1808.  Both continued to wear the Totenkopf through to 1815 (although neither participated in the Battle of Waterloo).
