Sleeping bag tag. M1942, Feb. '42 dated. From looking on the forum I found that this was part of a set that came with a rectangular bag (this one is a mummy bag), and a water proof cover.

Those are some great items from your flea market, I noticed the book mentions "From Ohio To The Rhine and Back" do you know if he was from Ohio?

 

Thanks for the comments everyone.

 

The book is not named that I could find. There's even a space in the back for the owners information and it is blank. It may be missing a few pages in the back, and is unattached from the binding.
