The Prussian Eagle (also known as the Hawk) with the letters FR emblazoned on its breast (on some of the Hawks it should be added) was the cap badge of The 14th/20th King’s Hussars.

It is the insignia of the Royal House of Prussia and was awarded to the 14th Light Dragoons in 1798 by the Crown Princess Frederica of Prussia.
