Recreating History

Army Chaplain Equipment

This is an original image of a chaplain conducted church service in Normandy France in 1944. We can duplicate the chaplain equipment shown here with some slight variation.

We provide a full set of chaplain service gear. The chaplain carried a portable kit to give communion in the field. The Eucharist (/ˈjuːkərɪst/; also known as Holy Communion and the Lord’s Supper among other names) is a Christian rite that is considered a sacrament in most churches, and as an ordinance in others. According to the New Testament, the rite was instituted by Jesus Christ during the Last Supper; giving his disciples bread and wine during a Passover meal, he commanded them to “do this in memory of me” while referring to the bread as “my body” and the cup of wine as “the new covenant in my blood Through the Eucharistic celebration Christians remember Christ’s sacrifice of himself on the cross.

The complete original kit is designed to be portable and used either on a table or the hood of a jeep.

The smaller chaplain kit can be easily carried in the back of a jeep and contains all that is need for communion.

The Chaplain service can be expanded to include an original chaplain organ and original song books.

The United States Third Army of World War Two had a large chaplain section and a prominent place in General Patton’s Headquarters as depicted on this chaplain’s page in the After Action report of 1945.
