      There is no particular mark for the flugleman other than his position in the
      line and the fact that he advances in front of the line to give the timings
      of various actions. Although it is a much later period if you have ever seen
      the ORIGINAL version of the film 'The Four Feathers' there is a great example
      of how the flugleman is used to do this, in this case to fix bayonets.
      Incidentally that film was made between the wars with real British soldiers
      wearing real Victorian uniforms.

      Cheers
