[#9676] Occupations (translation)

Recommended Posts

Gjest Richard Hellesen

Good day--One more set of translations to ask you about! In the various 'smeds' in 1801: is 'klensmed' the same as the later 'kleinsmed', i.e., locksmith? Also, at a loss to define 'kursmed' (also appears as 'cursmed'). My sense is that unless a smith's work is defined (as above, as well as guldsmed, koppersmed, etc.), then he would be what we call a blacksmith, i.e., general ironworker--but perhaps I'm wrong in this. Oh yes, one more occupation (or status) from 1801: 'Capellan p. Persona til indre hol medals kald'. Any help with this one greatly appreciated! [P.S: slightly off the subject, but a couple of terms from another site which have me baffled; both refer to a soldier's equipment around this time: 'rullepinne' and 'Enkeltmannspakke'. I know the latter refers to something for one person, but what? Thanks...]-- R. Hellesen

Regarding the socalled 'Personal Compress' or 'Enkeltmannspakke' (literally translated an Individual Package):It is is a small sterilized compress enclosed in plastic, which is supposed to be carried by the soldier at all times in the case of an urgent need of a First Aid treatment; - preferably ready and available in his/her uniform. Additional compresses may also be carried in specially designed First Aid kit-boxes.The personal compress is quite handy when it comes to stopping bleedings from minor wounds inflicted by (for example) a shrapnel or similar, at least temporarily. Major wounds will of course require more extensive medical measures/excessive and necessary treatment.Improved versions of the Personal Compress is of course still used by most (perhaps all?) modern armies/defense forces.Regards, Terje

Thank you all for your help! (Embarassed about being tripped up by the inadvertent space between 'hol' and 'medals'...)--RH
