Waterproofing Kit Pouch

This guy came with a bunch of patches in it at a local estate sale. The Chemical Corps insignia and Waterproofing Kit are just visible. No kit was in the pouch but I’m just looking for any background or period info as I’ve not seen one before. Thanks in advance.

These waterproofing kits were issued with gas masks for protecting them during river crossings and amphibious landings.  These would have been carried in the gas mask carry bag.  Many were never used (like the gas masks themselves) and often discarded. 
WW2 era.
