Navy Recipe Cards on eBay

Occasionally I receive an email asking me to locate a Navy recipe card set. I found this set on eBay this morning. It's misidentified as a World War II recipe set. During World War II the Navy published its recipes in book form. The Navy Recipe Service was first published in card form sometime in 1950s.

Here's the description:
I came across these awesome old recipe cards at an estate sale. The seller was selling her parents personal belongings, these belonged to her father, who was the Chief Petty Officer on board the U.S.S. MONTPELIER. The recipe cards are in wonderful condition. There are 16 different catorgories from MISC. INFORMATION to VEGETABLES, all the recipes are for 100 PORTIONS. Very interesting to read.
