#CD149 WM. A. L. CLAY CHAPLAIN MAJ Wallet
Original WWII Canadian Chaplain’s wallet. This wallet is embossed to WM. A. L. CLAY CHAPLAIN MAJ.  Maj Clay would have carried this wallet while sharing the hardships and perils of the soldiers he was there to advise. Chaplain’s were attached to all the divisions and battalions, and these men often saw combat themselves caring for and evacuating the wounded under fire.   Given the small size of the branch, any original Chaplain items are particularly hard to find and very desirable.  United Carr snaps and tempered steel hooks, possibly for dog tags (?). This is a nice wallet that has ‘been there’ and survived in good honest used condition with nice personalization. A great item for a Chaplain collector, or any WWII collection. *Sold*
