Return of white officers

I remember seeing in the past the moremove problem (moremover, long selfmate or study), where all white officers return to the initial game array squares - R->a1, S->b1, ..., R->h1, not necessarily in this order. Please, can you point to me at least one such problem?

One such example is the well-known P1081510 in PDB, by Mark Kirtley.

Dear Kostas, dear Siegfried, thank you for pointing both examples! Now I recognized both positions, so I have actually seen both in the past, maybe that is why I was not sure about the genre.
