Interior Translation:

Prayerful remembrance of the virtuous young man Josef Seiler, farmer's son in Naring, who fell on the field of honor on 26 May 1917, at the age of 20 years and 2 months, and after 11 months of loyal fulfillment of his duties.

To soon, too soon you departed,
Your loved ones' pleading in vain,
Oh, rest gently in foreign soil,
Until we see each other again on high.
