Hi guys I need your help This aluminium strip was given to a local in 1945 when this soldier his temporary grave was replaced. I have the details of this soldier and his previous burialsite but I want to know what the use was of this aluminium strip. (about 5 inches long) They told me it was attached on the back of the wooden cross. Is this correct? If so was it common to do this? Never saw this kind of strip before.
