I'm sure someone will come along and correct me but I always thought these were diagnostics tag pouches.

What are diagnostic tags?

You are correct-  US WWI MODEL 1910 DIAGNOSTIC TAG BOOKLET POUCH . Similar in style to the Model 1910 First Aid Packet Pouch, but larger , 6 1/8"x 3 3/4". These were issued with the Officers and Enlisted mens Medical Belts for carrying triage tags used to identify the needs of the wounded soldiers.
