Notes

"Geembargneerd": Non existing word I think it is from French embarquement which means embarkation, I think it means stationed, garrisoned

Possible story

Fredrik was 15 years old, when he joined the Dutch Army. in 1794 as a soldier. In 1797 he was stationed in North-Holland, and it looks if he had to fight against the English and Russians, because they landed on 22 Jul 1799 near Callantsoog. In 1805 he returned to Germany.

In 1809 we see him back in Zeeland. On 30 July 1809, The English landed on Walcheren, so it seems logic that he was 1 of the defenders

In 1811 he joined the Gendarmerie (Military Police)and was sent to Delfzijl, were he had to defend the city in 1813 against the Russians, English and Prussians. In the mean time he was already in the Dutch army (I think)

In 1813 he became stationed in Coevorden, were again a battle was going on in that period and the city had to be defended against the Russians [1]

In 1815 He fights in the battle of Waterloo in the Dutch Army
