Chaplain Murphy. A Navy Chaplain who was one of six Navy chaplains serving the Marines in Europe during WWI. He went on to serve in the PTO during WWII. I have his grouping.

Here is a WWII/Korea era Navy Chaplain Kit. Much like the Army but 24 inches instead of 22 inches wide (closed case). Also the Navy is blue, Army is maroon. The extra two inches was for paper and other supply items in side of the case.

Good to hear from you again.
Your WWI Chaplain set up is awesome! I got something you might be interested in to go with that, I'll PM you. I have a great love for Chaplains items but, your collection blows most everything I've ever seen out of the water. You should be proud of what you have.... uh, in a humble sort of way. http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif
We've all seen the army and navy song books. They came in a crate (or a hymnal chest). But one was marked "organ" another was marked "pulpit).
Here are my army set.

The army navy ship and field hymnal was not the best. The key was too high for many of the men.
Therefore, a Chaplain and his Assistant worked together and transcribed the hymnal in a key for men to reach.
Here is the fruit of their work. It is all hand written.

Since we are on the subject of music...Here is a copy of the chaplain song. Soldiers of God.
I got this in a stack of WWII sheet music. In the sheet music from the song was a letter from the Chief of Chapains during WWII to a Gen in the EN section at the Pentagon.

The chaplains had an album which contained the songs from the hymnals. This is from WWII.

Also with it is a Chaplain Bumper indicator for his jeep. They had these during the Korean War but many did not use them. Every chaplain captured during the Korean War never came back alive. http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/crying.gif
