Default "Second Lieutenant"

Does this make sense? Why would the rank be written in English?

It's not English, it's French. Normal for this time in Prussia.

Right The French spoken ranks Second-Lieutenant and Premier-Lieutenant were used in Prussian Army until 1899. Later: Leutnant und Oberleutnant
