The picture shows the cover and some sample pages of this 1942 Guide Book To The U.S. Navy Book. The images are great and I wish I could show all of the pages.

This (62) page book has (54) pages of Ship, Submarine, and Aircraft action images. Below each is some information. These images are believed to be the same as those that were used for old World War II era bubble gum or candy trading cards. I am not sure of the name of the set though. The book is like a set of cards.

The drawings in this book are by Barry Bart and the descriptive text is by James F. Wallace. There are six text pages of information about the United States Navy. On the back cover there is an airplane and an ad to Buy United States Saving Bonds and Stamps. The following is a long list of the ships and aircraft that are included in the book. Perhaps you were on one of these ships or flown one of these planes. There are a few pages there are religious stamps marked "S.A.G.". These will be noted with an asterik (*) in the list below. A sample of this stamp can be seen on one of the pages in the picture.

The book measures 5-1/2" x 3-1/2". The cover is in good condition with some wear. The inside covers have writing with names, an address and some spotting. The index has checkmarks. The good news is that the pages with images are clean.
