My Kits

This page isn’t for everyone, but maybe other “collectors.” Sometimes I need to show somebody one of my kits, or (more often) I need to quickly see them before I buy a piece or part one may be missing.  Feel free to look, but understand it’s just my personal collection of chaplain kits and just one picture of each (each picture is a different kit).

1897 Homan’s Sick Call Outfit. This box was apparently part of the kit used by a Catholic chaplain or minister assigned to the 23rd Infantry Regiment. The accoutrements aren’t original to the box but were the standard accessories of the outfit (author’s collection).
