I am researching the family of Georg Salcher (1845-1936) of Tyrol, Austria and found the following military discharge.


IMPERIAL – ROYAL FUSELIER BATALLION #6 OF PUSTERTHAL
FUSELIER’S DISCHARGE
Squad Leader Georg Salcher, born in the year 1845 in Reischach, County of Bruneck, Land of Tyrol, of Catholic religion, single status, without profession, served honorably in the Imperial Ranger Regiment for ten years, eight months and twenty-seven days as Patrol Leader, Assistant Ranger and Squad Leader. Also for two years as Squad Leader in the Fuselier Batallion #6, altogether twelve years, eight months and twenty seven days. He took part in the Campaign in Italy of 1866, was wounded during this campaign, and was decorated for his valor during the fighting.
This Squad Leader is authorized to wear the ???? Medal. After Squad Leader Georg Salcher had fulfilled his military obligation ???? he is as of December 31, 1878, discharged from the company of Fuseliers and according to Article 39 of the draft law awarded this Certificate for his loyal service.


Any help with this Salcher family or his military regiment would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
Dan
