Interior Translation:

Prayerful remembrance of the virtuous young man Georg Lechner, cottager's [?] son from Aschbach, pioneer with the 1st Bavarian Pioneer Battallion, 3rd Company, who, on 17 October 1914 and at the age of 23 years, suffered a hero's death for the Fatherland from shrapnel near Neuf-Berquin.

Sorrowful was the departure
Before setting off to the war,
But the pain cannot be named,
Since he never came back.

Our Father.Ave Maria.
O Lord, give him eternal rest!
