The third medal is called the "Medal of Hanseatic Legion".

About the Waterloo Medal, according to the expert i asked, your ancestor probably did not receive that medal in 1815 since that grenadier battailon did not exist at that time yet. This battailon was formed from Line Btn. Verden  in 1816/17. But it shows that your ancestor indeed fought for Kielmansegge.

Apparently that medal was only created in December 1817, so that would make sense.  Thanks for that clarification.

Any luck getting those extra pics off the camera?  I'm so jealous BTW.
