Prayerful remembrance of the virtuous young man Lorenz Mehringer, economist's son from Feldolling, soldier with the 16th Reserve Infantry Regiment, 9th Company, who, on 21 July 1916 and at the age of 20 years and 8 months, died on the transport after being severely injured. He lies buried in the cemetery at Wavrin (Northern France).

You have departed from us,
No longer reach your hand out to us,
You stayed a hero
In the distant enemy land.
So far from us: in Wavrin
Cool grass covers you,
At home your loved ones
Wish you eternal rest.

My Jesus, Mercy!
Our Father.Ave Maria.
