[left side]
In pious memory of the honorable young man Georg Kiemer, private in the 2nd Bavarian Reserve Infantry Regiment, 12th Company, holder of the Iron Cross 2nd Class, born 30 October 1890 in Holzkirchen. After 2 months of fearful uncertainty the news reached us that he found a hero's death on 4 September 1916, after 19 months of loyal fulfilment of his duties, in consequence of an infantry gunshot received in the Battle of the Somme.

Prayer: Almighty, merciful God, who in your venerated providence have appointed us to this moment of death, we ask thee with trusting and devoted hearts: look with mercy upon the soul of this fallen soldier, recognize his death, suffered in loyal fulfillment of his duties, as valid penance and lead him, after the horrors of war, into your eternal peace. Amen.
