Practice Relating to Rule 116. Accounting for the Dead
Section E. Information concerning the dead
Argentina’s Law of War Manual (1969) provides: “One half of a double identity disc or the whole disc if it is a single disc, shall remain on the body.”
The manual also states:
When circumstances so permit and at latest at the end of the hostilities, [the obituary] services shall communicate to each other, through the Information Office … the lists indicating … the details relative to the dead.
