Looks like Herr Ob.Lt. Schimke 3/2 Garde Osten, den 20.02.19?? to me.

Then I will go with that.... it is in retrospect a note written by "someone" on the back of a postcard and no reason to think that he got the spelling right. Probably picked up in conversation, and written as he thought best

Thanks for the efforts guys.

It's actually "ins Lazarettwagen..." not 'im'

I think the first word on the 2nd line is "stauchung" meaning upsetting.
