[WW II] M.1905 scabbard

Am putting up U.S. military mannequin displays for a new, small local museum. Query: For the November, 1942 invasion of North Africa, in what would a GI have carried his 16" 1905 Springfield bayonet? The leather and canvas covered issue?

Ditto for a Marine stepping ashore on Guadalcanal 7 August,'42. Could either have been issued the plastic scabbard?

AND, for the North African campaign, what form of American flag was on the troopers' sleeves: arm band or simple sew-on?

Thanks!
