Funeral and Ceremonies

I know it is a very general question...but as well it is.

When a body of a killed pilot was recovered by the enemy there always had been a funeral held by the opposite, ot the bodies will be sent to the respective squadron?
thanks in advance.

sorry for my bad english.

Often the pilots were buried where they fell until the end of the war when the respective countries sent "graves registration" investigators into the countryside.

You may wish to read this thread. Burial of enemy aces with military honors, norm or exception?

thanks mates.
your efforts have been very important to me.

I suspected there were many singular cases and distinguish them should be very hard.
