1. The Battlefield Marker
Inscription.  
The Battlefield Marker was used as both a support for blood plasma, and as a marker of the body of a fallen soldier when his steel helmet was placed on top of it. In the position depicted here, it was easily located by graves registration when they picked up the bodied following a battle. During and/or after the battle, the rifle of the fallen soldier, whether it was a 1903 Springfield, an AR-16 or a Garand semi-automatic rifle depicted here, fitted with a bayonet, was stuck in the ground alongside the fallen warrior. Sometimes his dog tags were placed on the rifle, as shown here.
