Dad’s Wartime Prayer Book

They say there are no atheists in a foxhole. Here is a prayer book I found with my father’s keepsakes. I can’t say it is well worn nor do I know if he used another prayer book when he went to mass overseas. He had a different, larger one at home. He was never much for going to mass when his children were growing up. He did make sure we went to mass and religious instruction.
