A first aid pouch to be worn with leather belt. Jefferson quartermaster department, rest are inspector initials. These leather accoutrements are typically worn by officers. Kevin

By 1952, Military Police items, I thought.

I agree -- MP belt gear  (Officers were no longer wearing leather belts then.).

 

Not sure what initials on front are for -- possibly the soldier's.  (Probably not inspector's marks.)
