[left side]
In prayerful loving memory of the virtuous young man Lorenz Kellerer, son of a tenant farmer in Aufham, private in the 26th Bavarian Infantry Regiment, 2nd Company, who, on 20 August 1917, in his 27th year, suffered a hero's death for the Fatherland in Maracesti (Romania).

Although death has rapidly separated us,
You are close to us, we remember you;
Someday reassurance and peace will return,
Consoling, into our hearts.

My Jesus, Mercy!
Sweet heart of Jesus, be my love!
Our Father.Ave Maria.
