In addition to the methods already provided in existing statutes therefor, a will
executed by a person while in the Armed Forces of the United States or the United
States Merchant Marine, shall be admitted to probate (whether there were subscribing
witnesses thereto or not, if they, or either of them, is out of the State at the time
said will is offered for probate) upon the oath of at least three credible witnesses
that the signature to said will is in the handwriting of the person whose will it
purports to be. Such will so proven shall be effective to devise real property as well as to bequeath
personal estate of all kinds. This section shall not apply to cases pending in courts and at issue on the date
of its ratification.
