Interior Translation:

Prayerful remembrance of the virtuous young man Peter Hipf, tailor master's son from Törring, soldier in the Royal Bavarian 24th Infantry Regiment, who, on 27 November 1915 and in his 24th year, died for the Fatherland in enemy territory.

You were chosen, a dear son and Brother,
For the world war -
And now, dear one,
We have lost you forever.
The hope of a resurrection
Glorifies the pain until reunion.

"Sweet heart of Jesus, be my love!"
"Sweet heart of Mary, be my love!"
"O gracious Jesus, give him eternal rest."
