Its obvious this gentleman hasn't the proper knowledge to make a judgement on the subject. But in a combat situation, this would be an important piece of equipment that should not be derided simply because it doesn't fit into a persons idea of a usefull accessory 60 years later. They are an historical artifact that may have saved many combat soldiers lives when fitted and used as designed.
My humble opinion.
