[right side]
In prayerful memory of the virtuous young man Johann Ettstaller, economist's son in Percha (Parish Feldkirchen), soldier in the 1st Infantry Regiment, 10th Company, who, on 11 October 1915, after 8 months of combat activity, suffered a hero's death for the Fatherland due to a grenade.

You, dear one, are gone, we remain,
You rest distant on the field of honor,
Your image is written in our hearts,
A hero for the defense of the Fatherland.
Ascend now from earthly sorrow,
Refresh yourself in heavenly joys!

Sweet heart of Jesus, be my love
Our Father.Ave Maria.
O lord, give him eternal rest!
