    Information Contained on WWI Burial Card

    familytreevets Wayfarer

      The burial card has two blocks near the bottom left entitled "R.B. Sketch No.", and "Photograph No.". Does anyone know what these pertain to and how to access the information? I have my ancestor's Burial Card, Burial Case File, and Burial Plats for his initial battlefield internment and subsequent internment. There isn't anything in that material that corresponds to the "R.B. Sketch No." and "Photograph No." shown on his Burial Card. The image is a sample of a Burial Card for reference.
