US m1943 field jacket

Bericht door ThijsBakermans »

Hallo Allemaal,

Ben nieuw op dit forum. Heb een m43 field jacket aangeschaft en ben erg benieuwd of het een oorlogse is en vooral.. Waar moet ik precies naar kijken. Heb me proberen flink te verdiepen maar zoek toch even wat bevestiging.

Super bedankt voor de input!

Een Spec 370C als ik het goed zie. Dated Nov-13, 1943. Wat prima klopt betreffende het model.

Verder klein model, maar wel in nette staat. Gewoon een 'prima' oorlogse M43.

This is an outline of the changes to specifications for the M43 Field Jacket. This document was copied from an early issue of the English language edition of the French magazine MILITARIA MAGAZINE.


The M-43 Field Jacket variations

(PQD = Philadelphia Quartermaster Depot)

1. Specification PDQ 1 370 (May 29 1943)

-The collar can be buttoned in an upwards position by a piece of cloth under the collar, it can be buttoned in two positions, depending on what type of clothing is worn underneath.
-13 sizes are available, three lengths are available, Short, Regular and Long.
-Makers tag is in the right breast pocket, printed on cheese cloth.
-Size tag is sewn in the collar.
-There is a loop sewn in the collar to suspend the jacket when not worn.
-The bottom of the sleeves are closed like the wool shirt.

2. Specification PDQ 370-A (June 30 1943)

-The piece of cloth under the collar is placed lower.
-The bottom of the sleeves is hemmed by just one row of stitching.
-13 sizes available, 2 lengths , Regular and Long.
-Two lengths of cloth are sewn in at both extremities of the lower pockets to support the weight sometimes carried in them. One of these pieces of cloth goes all the way up to the collar.


3. Specification PQD 370-B (July 9 1943)

-The bottom of the sleeves are more simplified.
-The patch for closing the collar is replaced by a trapezoid patch sewn behind the left side of the collar and held in place by buttons.
-The second button for the collar is no longer there.
-The size is now printed below the collar.
-Makers tag is in the right lower pocket.

4. Specification PQD 397 (September 15 1943)

-Looks like the M-1943-A
Its made of poplin, and lined by flannel to use up the existing stocks for the Field Jacket lining (M-1941) Its made in small amounts until spring 1944.

5. Specification PQD 370-C ((October 11 1943)

-Thicker buttons.
-Suppression of the 2nd button of the patch for the upstanding collar when its not being used.
-The loop for suspending the jacket is now actually sewn in a loop. This was not so before.
-18 sizes available, three lengths, Short, Regular and Long.

6. Specification PQD 370-D (February 23 1944)

-‘How to use’ tag added below the collar, rectangular, in cheese cloth or on fabric.

7. Specification PQD 370-E (February 13 1945)

-18 sizes, three lengths, Short, Regular and Long.
-The size tag is sewn in with the collar and the size is marked in red, blue or black.
-‘How to use’ tag now has a small drawing added. Some makers print this tag on the lining by a transfer that is ironed on.
-The breast pockets are made larger, supposedly to be able to carry K rations.

8. After 1945

-Internal buttons added for fitting a liner.
-The color changes to a brighter color.
