Description German Death Announcement

Interior Translation:

In pious, prayerful memory of the honorable Mr. Georg Furtner, replacement reservist in the 2nd Bavarian Infantry Regiment, who, on 17 October 1916, in his 24th year and after 19 months of loyal fulfillment of his duties, found a hero's death for the Fatherland.

Mother, dry your tears;
As the cold ore struck me,
My last longing was with you!
Break not, break not, mother's heart.
Grant me the death of heroes.
Bear your pain as a hero;
There wasn't better news to report to you.
Break not, break not, mother's heart.
