    Not my area at all, but looks to me like a standard issue set of kit for a US GI.  Here is a site which reproduces all these pieces and can provide you with the model and year of introduction for each: http://www.wwiiimpressions.com/newusarmygear.html

    Here's a shot of the canteen and cover, for example.
