Bottle-Identification, Burial (Stock No. 57-B-1000)

Glass bottle containers stored per six in a cardboard box with sleeve. Those could be used at a temporal burial of a deceased soldier storing small personal effects that could speed up identifying later. It ain’t a pretty idea, but tattoos and piercings were cutt from the body and stored in one of those green glass bottles, to be burried with the remains.
