Walter Henry Powell's Prayer Book

My Father never seemed to be an overtly religious man, but this well-thumbed, worn prayer book, carefully tucked in his leather RCAF document wallet dispells that notion, and shows instead someone whose faith helped to carry him and his crew through the stresses of war.

The image below (scroll down) shows the leather wallet that contained his Prayer Book and Service and Pay Book.

The RCAF Navy Blue Leather Document Wallet carries the RCAF Per Ardua Ad Astra logo, stamped in gold, and the initials W.P., also in gold.
