Paul Allen

i have an exact same one that was given to me by my late grandad here in Bolton, England. Always wondered how rare they would be

Bob Meade

Thanks Paul.


Two moving prayers from the navy.

The sailors prayer:
O Eternal Lord God, who alone spreadest out the heavens and rulest the raging of the sea; who hast compassed the waters with bounds until day and night come to an end; Be pleased to receive into thy Almighty and most gracious protection the persons of us thy servants and the Fleet in which we serve. Preserve us from the dangers of the sea and the violence of the enemy; that we many be a safeguard unto our most gracious Sovereign Lord, King GEORGE and his Dominions and a security for such as pass on the seas upon their lawful occasions; that we may return in safety to enjoy the blessings of the land, with the fruits of our labours and with a thankful rememberance of thy mercies to praise and glorify thy holy name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Ships Prayer:
O Eternal Father, we pray for all who sail in this ship. Unite us in the spirit of service and friendship and strengthen us that we may faithfully perform our duty. We ask thy blessing on those we love and pray that we have everlasting peace through Jeasus Christ our Lord. Amen.

this may be the same edition given by British troops to Jurgen Moltmann while he was a POW at the end of WWII. If so, it was instrumental in reviving Christian faith in Germany after the Nazi regime.
