English term or phrase: departed comrade
Maybe I could be clearer. 2 phases on a firemen's helmet shield that is draped with the coffin. Across top "Departed comrade" & across bottom "we Mourn". From other research: Mortuus-to depart as in die;Socius-comrade/ally:lugeo-to mourn

Latin translation:defunctus comes --ploremus
Explanation:
Hi Dtace,

In a previous answer I suggested that the word that seems to apply in this context is "comes" as in brother in arm, brother serving with another, comrade, that is.

Mourn I would translate as "plorere" , ploremus.
