I am not certain what Regiment you have in mind so I point you to this website about Austrian Troops.
I am not sure if the Details are in there - to see the Pictures you have to click on the blue Dots on the left

„Macht Euch Euren Dregg alleene“

"Sort your filth out by yourself!" The King of Saxony Friedrich August III., at his abdication 1918, referred to the quarrels in the parliament and the squabbling within the provisional government.
