I just saw a very old framed letter titled " Certificate of medal " . This goes on the state that a soldier named John Refsler is awarded the Waterloo medal from the Duke of Hess Nassau for his services and conduct during the Battle of Watterlo.
This is not a printed certificate & is all handwritten , very old & dated December 20 , 1817 from the war department of the duchy , and signed "Krum". This is in two in parts one is "Certificate of medal " & the second is instructions for the wearing of it. It is all in English. It seems pretty neat & official despite not being an actual certificate. Could this be an English translation , or the actual certificate ? HAs anyone ever seen the like?
