The chain is probably a lock for a hitch pin on a towing bracket. The flat bit would go in the end of the hitch pin. The chains would go to the sides of the rear of the vehicle. And the snap hook would help keep it all from being lost.

I do not know what vehicle or trailer though.

Is it for sale?

The drawer looks like it is out of a US Army field desk?

The drawer is more typical of a German/European design. The Americans didn't usually incorporate box joints into the construction of their field furniture. They relied more on butt and rabbet joints, occasionally reinforced with metal edging.
