    I've come across different letters and documents in relation to the GRUs, grave registration units saying all graves will be photographed and 2 copies sent to next of kin. As they are not GCU (grave concentration units) I presume this means field graves before bodies were exhumed and concentrated in military cemeteries.

    Is anybody aware of this taking place, or indeed perhaps have copies of these photos themselves?

    I am in particularly interested in photos taken of the "Tieghem roadside cemetery" in Flanders.

    But confirmation that these photographs were taken in general would make me happy.
