Hi everyone, as part of my search for the history of the crew to Lancaster LM463 lost on the Nuremburg raid I have details of a graves concentration unit as shown above that signed for the crew bodies so that they could be transferred and buried in the Hannover war cemetry.

Can anyone give me any information about this unit or those within it please or anywhere else I could get some information. The signature on the receipt was by a Alexander (then looks like or similiar to) Shankman Captain ICR commanding 3 section 85 graves conc unit (british) 23/4/47.

I always though it was the RAF that recovered crew but any help would be appreciated.

Thankyou

Paul
