1942 comforter, cotton filled, Info?

Recommended Posts

It appears to be the comforter that went with the M-1935 officer's bedroll. There should a post about them on the forum, but I can't find it.

The Comforter, Cotton Filled was a OD colored GI quilt that was issued for use on the individual (twin sized) bunks usually in the cooler climes.


You often see them rolled up at the foot of bunks in those all encompassing barracks photos.


Although they certainly could have been spirited away for all sort of uses, their intended use was in a static housing setting.
