    Yes it is a great piece and mine had color was also square and in German . They are used to get a quick reference on how to treat a certain type of injury on field . I can not say it is military issue but they were great idea to carry . As a Nam Nurse we did not have these but I will bet one of our military guys on CW will know if they still use or I will ask my son he just got out and saved his own life when hid by a IUD . The pics cover ways to stop bleeding , stabilize a broken bone and clean something out of eye . The bleeding instructions are pretty clear but most often hand applied pressure will stop it use tourniquet only as last resort as you may lose limb from it . I just love this . Great Piece !

    Esmarch bandage (also known as Esmarch's bandage for surgical haemostasis or Esmarch's tourniquet) in its modern form is a narrow hard rubber tourniquet with a chain fastener that is used to control bleeding by applying it around a limb in such a way that blood is expelled from it[1]. This prevents the flow of blood to or from the distal area, making it easier to operate. The limb is often elevated as the elastic pressure is applied.

    The original version was designed by Friedrich von Esmarch, professor of surgery at the University of Kiel, Germany, and is generally used in battlefield medicine. Esmarch himself had been Surgeon General to the German army during the Franco-German War. It consisted of a three-sided piece of linen or cotton, the base measuring 4 feet and the sides 2 feet 10 inches. It could be used folded or open, and applied in thirty-two different ways. An improved form was devised by Bernhard von Langenbeck later on.
    Mine was more like the first one shown on this link and yes it was German as I thought and for Military :-)
