Picture/Certificate of Colbergischen Grenadier Inquiry

Surnames: Brandenburg
I have inherited a picture/certificate/document with my Great Grandfather's name on it. I believe it is some kind of remembrance of military service. My Great Grandfather Wilhelm Friedrich Ferdinand Brandenburg was born on January 15, 1860 in Falkenberg, Naugard, Pommern, Prussia. He Immigrated to Wisconsin in 1885. I have attached (hopefully) a picture of the document. It is about 24 inches high and 36 inches across. It seems to depict battles and has three (possibly military officers) men in wreaths on top and three men in military outfits in the middle. It seems the three in the middle are of the same man in three different uniforms. It almost seems like the heads were cut out of a picture and pasted on. The wording on the top is: Es lebe hoch das Regiment, das sich mit Stolz das 9te nennt.
Bottom wording is : Bur Erinnerung an meine Dienstzeit.
Wilhelm Brandenburg
2.Comp.i. Colbergischen Grenadier Rgt. (2.Pomm.) No.9.Stargard.1882.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. I have no information on his military service.
