My father had two chests exactly like yours. He served two years in the Army during the end of WWII, got out and went to college, then went back into the Air Force until he retired. He never told us where he got the chests (and we never asked), but I am thinking WWII because his were filled with WWII memorabilia.

I would like to read with others think.

Added - Looks like Camp Beale in one of the photos which is now Beale Air Force Base in northern California.
