Additional Notes: The US Army’s M-1943 combat jacket was a combat uniform manufactured in windproof cotton sateen cloth introduced in 1943 to replace a variety of other specialist uniforms and the M-1941 Field Jacket. It was used through the remainder of WW2 and into the Korean War with modifications before being replaced by the OG-107 uniform beginning in 1952. The uniform was tested in Italy in 1943 by the 45th Infantry Division and the 3rd Infantry Division. Along with shipping delays after D-Day kept this uniform from widespread use in Europe until late 1944. Officially designated ‘Jacket, Field, Combat M-1943’, this pattern of jacket was standardized in August 1943. It saw widespread issue with may units throughout the winter of 1944-45 and stayed in issue and production until it was succeeded by the M-1951 Combat Jacket.
