Thanks in advance,

These were not issue items but rather an item that was made from the padding found inside the end caps on A5 drop bundles and the padding found inside "Griswold Bags" (aka arial delivery rifle scabbards). I will post some photos of known & ID'd originals later today. I think yours look consistent with period examples. Late in WWII the Army did manufacture and produce a commercial example of these pads. I will also post a picture of them as well.
Hope this helps.
