1701. CHURCH AND JEWISH WORSHIP PENNANTS Navy Flag Regulation NTP 13 (B)

a. Section 3 of Public Law 929 - 77th Congress as amended by Public Law 107 - 83rd Congress authorized the use of the church pennant above the national ensign "during church services conducted by naval chaplains at sea." By long established customs, the phrase "Naval Chaplains" has traditionally been recognized to indicate visiting church dignitaries and chaplains of other services when actually engaged in conducting divine services for naval personnel afloat. The phrase "at sea" is interpreted for U.S. Navy purposes as meaning "on board a Navy ship."

e. Shore stations, while not authorized to display the church pennant above the ensign, may display it separately if desired.

g. The Jewish worship pennant (authorized 12/75 by SECNAV) shall be displayed during Jewish religious services afloat and ashore. The same rules governing the display of the church pennant apply to the display of the Jewish worship pennant

"Treating a casualty on board the hospital ship USS Solace, May 1945"

A Chaplain helping out a wounded soldier, sailor or marine as a navy corpsman works on him. Or could that be a wounded civilian from one of the western civilian populations in someplace like Guam or the Phillippines that fell to the Japanese? If not, that is one young GI.

The photo is part of the Chaplain display at The National Museum of the Pacific War, Fredericksburg, TX

I stayed overnight in Fredericksburg. I knew there was a museum there about the Pacific war. I thought it was a small town historical society type museum since Fredericksburg is the birthplace of Chester Nimitz. I was wrong. There's a museum all right. It is a massive world class institution. I thought I'd spend an hour there. I spent the entire day. It is a fine collection, well displayed and well explained.

The photo and caption above are from the museum.

 

 

Makes you wonder what is going through that kid's mind right then. Makes you wonder if he made it.

A chaplain's kit containing the tools of the trade. As you have surely seen from war photographs, chaplains set up services on a box, in a hole, on the hood of a jeep- anywhere............

 

...............Even on a sinking ship:


The Four Chaplains and the Sinking of the Dorchester

The Four Chaplains were four United States Army chaplains who gave their lives to save other soldiers during the sinking of the USAT Dorchester during World War II. They helped other soldiers board lifeboats and gave up their own life jackets when the supply ran out; Refusing evacuation themselves, the last anyone saw of them they were linked arm in arm, clutching the railing, praying and singing hymns as the sea swept over them and their ship.

The chaplains, who all held the rank of lieutenant, were the Methodist Reverend George L. Fox, the Jewish rabbi Alexander D. Goode, the Roman Catholic Priest John P. Washington and the Reformed Church in America Reverend Clark V. Poling. The four chaplains were sailing on then USAT Dorchester troop transport on February 3, 1943 when the vessel was torpedoed by the Kriegsmarine's U-223.

As the vessel sank, the four chaplains calmed the frightened soldiers and sailors, helped the wounded, aided in the evacuation of the ship, and helped guide men from below decks to safety above.

Wrote one survivor:
"As I swam away from the ship, I looked back. The flares had lighted everything. The bow came up high and she slid under. The last thing I saw, the Four Chaplains were up there praying for the safety of the men. They had done everything they could. I did not see them again. They themselves did not have a chance without their life jackets."

Most of my info on The Four Chaplains has been quoted from Wikipedia.
