    Apparently his remains consisted of his head, neck, his belt, and "Restu" (burial place?)...
    fascinating reading...I assume "A.G." is Artillerie Geschoss...
    Not his remains, Glenn; his head, neck and hand were the injured body parts. Agreed on the artillery shell; apparently, he suffered multiple shrapnel hits.

    The Restu farm/estate was where he sustained the fatal wounds.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
