Historic Chaplain’s kit fresh out of the woodwork. KIA 1943 while conducting services in the PTO


Recommended Posts

As already stated...everything about this is amazing and a really great find. This is what we look for with every item saved...a direct and well documented link to the past. I'm sure all of us would love to have this in our collection and I'm glad it ended up with someone who will preserve it. Its hard telling why it was separated from the family but these things do happen and at least now it will be well cared for. Congrats and thanks for sharing!

A wonderful and sacred relic. Glad that it was saved by someone who can treasure it. R.I.P. Chaplain Munroe. P.S. i wonder if he was a qualified parachutist? Bobgee

"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)

Would you believe it was a donation to good will.
