First World War booklet of psalms and hymns for soldiers

This small booklet of psalms and hymns for soldiers in the field was one of many produced in the First World War. Most soldiers in the British Army at that time had a strong Christian faith and chaplains of all denominations were attached to all divisions and units. Proper church services were held when circumstances allowed and services were held "in the field” when war activities took precedence.
