Welcome aboard - knock on the door and c'mon into the Goat Locker.
Kick off your shoes and pull up a chair.
The is hot, black and thick enough to cut and the cook has fixed a batch of cookies.

As far as the fart sack - the only thing I can think of are the sleeping bags that were issued to the CBs and to shore parties assigned to sorting out all of the thousand and one items that were shipped ashore after the beach front was secure. They were designed for use in the South Pacific and were made of fairly light material. I believe that they were all labelled "USN". That would also fit right in with the 1946 date. If I remember, they were a light shitty tan color that had a tendency to bleach out to a dirty whitish tan. The only reason I recognize the description was because I purchased one as a kid from an Army/Navy store to be used while camping as a Boy Scout.
