A Vietnam era hymnal chest. The difference is the metal handles.

A digital bugle chaplains are given for military funerals. All you need to do is to push the button and taps is played.
These have been around for 10 years.

Good catch.
Yes he has a pinback PUC over a sew on PUC. He was either awarded or in a unit that allowed him to wear an additional PUC. It does look strange...and for a chaplain to be into what he wears...and not how he serves... http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/think.gif

Notice his discharge has him as a marksman...I didn't think chaplains were allowed to carry weapons. B)

Now some more from my collection.
Here is a field pump organ. These were used from WWI to Vietnam. This one was used during WWII.


I was in a reserve signal unit in the early 1990's and a medical unit shared our reserve center. They still had one of these field organs and once when our drill weekends coincided we had a combined Sunday morning worship service, with their chaplain playing hymns on the old organ. It was cool.

The first Air Force Chaplain Manual dated 1954. I also have the 1956 edition. The cover is the same.
The author of the manual was a Army Air Force Chaplain who helped write Army Chaplain doctrine.

Since you want to be a protestant chaplain, the kit could be post #12, 13 or 44-45. They could also just jump with the chalice.

Ok Chap15,

As I'm not really used to chaplain'ss gear could you explain the main differences between catholic and protestant stuff please ?
As per fabric color on the altar, It depends if the chaplain is from Navy, Army or Air Force ??

During WWII Navy kits were blue, army were maroon.
AF Kits in the 50's were blue.
During the 50s-60 the army had maroon and blue (mostly maroon).
The stuff is different because of theology.
As far as reenacting chaplains and using the stuff...go to US military reenactors forum about a discussion about how much a reenactor should or should not do as a chaplain. The question comes up...should a non ordained person perfrom communion???
