Model 1915 Preußen Jäger zu Pferde issued Metalhelme. Originally raised from Meldareiter (mounted dispatch riders) in 1887, the Jäger-zu-Pferde ceased to be used in that function after becoming a regiment in 1901 and were employed as mounted light infantry, similar to Dragoner Regiments.
Blued steel helmets for the Preußen Jäger zu Pferd followed the 1915 regulations and utilized grey oxidized steel fittings.
