Even if it was absolutely not a piece of winter equipment, imho this piece of kit  has a place in here!  Many GI's used the Gas Hood instead of a Balaclava, to protect their heads from the biting cold during the winter of 1944/1945!

Another watertight container for matches.





This type of matchsafe was also found in the USAAF Type E3 surviaval kits . im fortunate enough to have an example , yours is especially nice in having the matches and divider (?)
2018 and STILL WANTED! a pair of RAF 1940 Patt boots and RAF life vest
Always looking for quality condition USAAF stationary,ephemera,equipment and clothing.
Starting to look for the harder to find items e.g. survival kits and items also woukd like to add a complete "Gibson Girl " set up
