Only the tag was retrieved and Soldbuch. Taking off rings, watches, decorations and personal items would be neither possible or practical during combat.08/15 wrote:Question: Before a fallen soldier was buried by his comrades, what items were removed from his body? I assume that in addition to his Soldbuch and dogtag half anything personal like letters, photos, watch, rings, etc. was retrieved to be sent home to his family. I would also assume that all decorations he may have earned were taken off his uniform before he was laid to rest. Can anyone confirm this?
