Interior Translation:

Prayerful remembrance of the honorable young man Stefan Bauer from Feldkirchen, Reservist in the 8th Reserve Infantry Regiment, who, on 17 February 1915, in his 28th year, suffered a hero's death for the Fatherland in an assault near Com__ [?].

From brothers and dear sisters
You took your leave, never to be seen again,
And as for us, your father and mother,
Our hearts wanted to die from the pain.
The blow is heavy, which has struck us,
The delicate ribbon torn apart. -
Yet sweet comfort has remained with us:
You died a hero for the Fatherland!
