"WWII , 3RD US ARMY IN ROUAMONT FRANCE SOLDIERS GRAVES IN SNOW"
The 3rd Army was led by General Patton, so these battle field graves are likely "tankers"
I count 5 graves and a typical tank crew was 5.

Note the shadows in the left foreground. One is probably the photographer.


This was scanned from the actual negative I got off of Ebay recently
WWII_1944_WINTER__001_SE1w.jpg
.
There was some light leaks near the bottom so had to crop a bit.

Did the negative include the info? There is a 5th marker over to the right of the 4 in front.
The info stated it was 3rd Army, in France. This "might" have been Winter of 44.
Your'e right, there are 5!
I'm guessing a little since Patton was commanding tanks & a tank crew is 5.
When a tank got hit, you usually lost the whole crew..
