It looks like this was Joseph A Gemmell, a comm guy who started working with the Air Wing in the mid-1950's.

Thanks for the info Bob!

The bag was mostly issued to officers in WWII (this one appears to be dated 1944). There is a modern day civilian version called the Skyroll.

This doesn't show his pre-war Reserve service but between that and active duty he spent 32 years with the Corps.
