Good morning to all! Any idea about these items? Came from a USA bivouac in Salerno 1943 area.
Many thanks for your help!

The round item "pic 2" is called a bung. Used as a plug for the opening in a barrel or can.

Pic 3 is the female part of what I call a pin snap? a fastener for ammo pouch, pack, canteen cover, etc.

The last item is a religious medal depicting the Saint Benedict Exorcism.

Yes indeedy. It's a variant on the one posted here recently (see my comments on the inscription):
