Besitz Zeugniss -Combat Service 1848-49 (1st Schleswig War?)

Post by Nick » Sun Sep 16, 2012 7:17 pm

Attached is yet another document that came in the bundle I received. This appears to be some sort of certificate commemorating/acknowledging combat duty during the period 1 March 1848 to 1 October 1849.

It is again to a Nestman, this time spelled with just one 'n' at the end. The certificate text that is printed is fairly easy to make out and translate, but I am struggling mightily with the hand-written portions. What is the rank and first name of this Nestman? Also, what is hand-written at the bottom? Most importantly I'm trying to determine what unit he served in.

Am I correct that this would be for duty in the First Schleswig War, or would it be for a different conflict? Do others have examples of this certificate?

Any help deciphering this would be greatly appreciated,
Nick
