More Translations & Prussian Ranks

I am now translating the capitulation articles for the city & fortress of Madgeburg, Article VI deals with "others" that are to be treated as officers...they include cadets, porte-enseignes, feld-webels de l'infanterie, et premiers marechaux-des-logis de la cavalerie. Cadets I suppose is a directly translated title, porte-enseignes-I assume is flag bearer (did they have a specific rank?), feld-webels I think means company sergeant-major, the last however I don't understand? Quarter-master? I assume it is some senior enlisted rank in the cavalry.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
