Crab and Oyster Company Casserole

"This recipe came from a Cambridge, Maryland Fire Department cook book of the 1960s. My mother used to make it almost everytime we had company. Her children liked it so much they put it into the cookbook they put together for our parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary."
