I have found in various forums mention of image marshal's baton on epaulettes until 1827, but the sources of this information I have not found. About the stars on the epaulettes of military engineers, introduced in 1810 (in 1809 was created Corps of Communication Ways) can be found in Wikipedia: This system insignia reminds me of the Japanese Imperial Army....
