Purchased a 1944 U.S. Army Medical Dept blanket. It has been airing outside for about 3 weeks & still has unpleasant funk. 

My question can it be hand washed in cold water & air dried ?

I've used Woolite and done as you've described with safe and good results.  A good long soak and the funk should be history.

I have found Woolite to be non abrasive and very effective on dirty field gear as well
