~ Ueb Aug und Hand für's Vaterland ~
The verse on this 20th century stein marked Marzi & Remy is seen on many German marksmen's steins and here shows the legendary Swiss patriot, William Tell, who shot the apple from his son's head and helped found the Swiss Confederacy.
Ueb Aug und Hand für's Vaterland!

Schützenlust hebt die Brust.
Train eye and hand for the fatherland!

The joy of protecting lifts one's breast.
 (i.e., makes one proud)
