Inscriptions N Simonsen - 1864.
Dansk: En dansk menig Jens Jacobsen fra 8. Regiment 5. Kompagni fortæller: "Lidt nord for Flensborg reddede vort kompagni en feltkanon, som stod i grøften. Premierløjtnant Schiøtt syntes, det var en skam, om tyskerne skulle have den. Nogle artillerister, som kom forbi, kunne ikke tage den med, for seletøjet til deres heste var sprunget. Skal vi tage den med? - foreslog han. Jo, det blev vi let enige om. En flok tog straks fat, og en syg kammerat kom op at køre." Generalmajor Carl Caroc nævner i hans rapport om infanterireservens tilbagetog fra Dannevirke, at 8. Regiment slæbte i alt to kanoner med fra Flensborg til Gråsten. Den ene kanon, som var fornaglet, medtoges fra Nystaden (Neustadt) og den anden fra Klusris Skov (Kluesries). Næsten alle soldater i regimentet deltog ifølge Caroc på skift med at slæbe kanonerne.
English: Jens Jacobsen, a Danish private from the 8th Regiment, 5th Company said: "Just north of Flensburg our company salvaged a field cannon that had been left in a ditch. Lieutenant Schiøtt thought it would be a shame that the Germans should have it. Some passing artillerymen could not take it, as the harness of their horses had sprang. Should we take it? - He suggested. Yes, we readily agreed. A crowd immediately took hold, and a sick mate came up and running". In his report on the infantry reserve retreat from Dannevirke, Major General Carl Caroc mentions that the 8th Regiment dragged a total of two cannons from Flensburg to Gråsten. One cannon, which was pierced, came from Nystaden (Neustadt) and the other from Klues forest (Kluesries). Almost all the regiment's soldiers joined and took turns in dragging the cannons, according to Caroc.
